you violated the month to month lease by being late. The notice is an offer of a new agreement. It should be given in time for you to give notice that you do not accept and are moving out. that is the thing about monh-to-month agreements, BOTH parties are free to terminate upon notice to the other. The notice you got is notice that they are terminating the old agreement, and an offer of a new one, that you are free to accept or reject.

In California they must give a 30day notice when asking for a increase in rent. They also should have given you a notice sayin that the lease was up, and you were going to be month to month from now on. You should ask to sign a new lease so you are guarenteed they cannot raise the rent for the duration of the lease period.

First thing to check is what is the late fee or late fees? Some complexes like mine charge just a flat rate for being late. Others charge a flat rate as well as a daily fee. A landlord must give you a 30 day notice in writing that they are planning on raising your rent. Go into the rental office and ask about signing a new lease see what the rate will be and what they are willing to offer you. And yes you are considered a Month-To-Month lease at this time.

if you are month to month, you are at the mercy of "market rates".

I believe if you are month to month - you are at their mercy - time to sign a new lease and read the fine print sorry

sounds like they added in late fees/returned check charges, but they are not supposed to do that on a 3 day notice. They filled out the paperwork wrong, so it isn't legally binding on the 3 days, but you still owe the money.

This all depends where you live and whether there is rent control. Landlord's are usually required to provide notice of some type before changing rents. Check your original lease and see if a clause was added for late payment and/or the terms after the lease expired.

they have to give 30day notice but w/a new lease agreement,if you signed then its legal are sure its not late charges in there as well.they can do that it will be in the old lease.

They can change the cost of rent when you re-sign a year contract. There is nothing promised past the 12 month lease that you signed before. After the 12 months is up, it's a free-for all for them.
