30 days is standard. I would put it in writing and have it notarized. just in case those checks make there way to the bank. put your notice in asap. that way you have time to make sure you can get the unused checks back from him too. hope this helped

You need to get a certified letter from your post office or have a notary public stamp it. The normal legal time for a "proper notice" is 30 days. As for the post dated checks, after you notify him of your intent to vacate the premises, contact your bank and have a stop placed on them. I'm not too sure of Canada's laws but I live in the US and I've been through this. Make sure you go into detail about why you are choosing to vacate. Do not say that you have another apartment, basically just tell him that due to unforseen financial situations you can no longer afford to occupy the premises and feel it to be unfair if you did so knowing that you cannot afford to keep payment. Hope this helps!

You may want to talk to the land lord and see what they will accept. You really should give 2-3 months to be safe but 1 month is usually OK. See what you can do to get your checks back. ( Make sure you get a credit check also. They Landlord could have easily used the checks to purchase other things)

In RI, 30 days is the norm. No lease? That's odd. I'd call him/her. Make sure you get your checks back and cancel/void them! Good luck!

Depends on the rules where you live. You should be able to find the info on local government pages - but it can vary a great deal. (normally I would have said to check the lease!) I would guess that, assuming you have a good relationship with your landlord - 2 weeks is fairly common (but again, you should check!) Best of luck.

Usually its 1 month.....It depends on the laws where you live. Make it written. Take pictures when you leave. Even if there is no lease you must give notice.

If there is no lease, you can leave when you like. It would be polite to give the lanlord as much notice as you can. 30 days notice is enough.

If he is ugly I'd give him very little notice. If he is cute then be pleasant and a little flirty. If he is a hunk you want - the the sky is the limit on giving notice. *grin*
