I've looked through my lease hundreds of times and have seen nothing stating a specific amount of days for a notice terminating my lease (not an early termination just end of lease) all I've seen is if it turns Month to Month give a 30 day notice and 30 days before the lease ends display of signs like for sale/rent.....so what do I do our lease ends on july31 and would like a very smooth termination with as much of our deposit back as possible.....going crazy with this so any help will be greatly appreciatedAnswer Question

I would recommend sending a letter of intent by certified return receipt in the mail. This way the landlord is required to sign for the letter and you will have a receipt that shows that he / she received it. It's not nasty, it's covering your bases. Most apartments have white walls. You can spackle and paint the walls where you have hung things up (if you have), clean spots on the carpet and clean the apt. The less they have to do for a new tenant, the more of your deposit you will get back. I have moved out of apts where I have gotten the whole deposit back because we borrowed a friend's carpet cleaner and did that ourselves.
