No he was asking if the notice was good enough. Its not. When the thirty days starts depends on the state he lives in. I believe here in NY its the last day of the rent period....giving an entire rental month to vacate.
But I'm sure someone has a better answer for this than I do.
But once again "a couple of days" is definately too short a time.
: What he is asking is when does the 30 days start? Since he has paid September's rent, when the LL notified him in the middle of the month,
: or the 1st of next month Oct1? So It must be vacant by Oct 31st?
: : Not "a couple of days notice". Notify the landlord that by law you're entitled to 30 days notice and thats what you're going to take. If he attempts to lock you out or doing anything. Call the cops thats illegal. Even as a month to month you're entitled to at least 30 days and have a right not to be locked out.

: : : I rent a small apartment and the garage under it in upstate NY. I have no lease and made agreement with the landlord for rental on a month to month basis, no rent regulation.
: : : Recently the landlord informed me the tenant in the single family residence (also located on the same property)was purchasing the property and closing was going to be in a couple days.
: : : The landlord told me I should look for a new place to live as the new landlord is going to move his sister-in-law in after the closing.
: : : Have I been given legal notice to vacate?
: : : If/when the new LL tells me to vacate, how long do I leagally have before I have to go(days/weeks/month,etc...)?
: : : I paid 1 month security and have had no problems with my rent. It's always early!!!
: : : Please help me, I need to know!!!
