Property Manager is trying to force me to give 60 days notice.

I have been renting a home for 4 years. The first year I had a lease with a 60 day out. I have not signed anything since the first lease. I now wish to move, but the property manager says I need to give 60 days beginning on the 1st of the month in order to move. Is this correct? it is difficult to look this far in advance without simply taking a leap of faith. I found the perfect place, but, of course they want me to move in within 30 days.

That doesn't sound right to me... I would think that you would have to give 30 days adn since you didn't sign anything renewing the old terms, I would doubt that she could still hold you to the 60 day notice.

I'd check out the landlord/tenant laws for your state, they always spell it out well.

Good luck!

I disagree. It's likely that your lease is much shorter (and easier to locate) than your state legislation on tenant/landlord relationships. Secondly, the legislation often only gives general guidelines - those could be overridden by what you signed. So, look first at teh document you signed to see what it says about giving notice to vacate and what it says about renewals of the term of your lease - some leases renew month-to-month after the initial term, some renew in increments of the original term. Bottom line is you need to read what you signed first, then you can identify how to proceed. I am a property manager and also require 60 day notice - it's because that is the optimal time for marketing a property (30 days just isn't enough time to secure new tenants.) When searching for properties, you should be paying attention to the date it will be available, watch for new listings coming on the market that are currently tenant occupied because they are likely to be for a vacancy 60 days out. Yes, sometimes it takes the leap of faith. Finally, regardless of what you signed, you may be able to negotiate something different. Property managers are responsible to the owner (their client) but may have some flexibility for a tenant who has been there 4 years - especially if you are willing to go above and beyond to help them get it re-rented. Good luck with your search and let me know if you have any interest in buying a place of your own.
