I think weather they give thirty days or not, depending on the contract signed, the tenant is still responsible for paying for the thirty days. If tenant leaves in week one of thirty days, they are responsible for paying the other three weeks of the month plus whatever previous unpaid rent.

Disappear in the middle of the night like my previous tenants have always done. If you are breaking your lease then whether you give 30 days or not you will not get your deposit back.

Yes you still have to give the 30 days notice. My son had an apt., he didn't pay his last months rent, he went to talk to the manager to tell them he was moving out. They said they could not let him out of his lease until 30 days from that day. Even though his lease was up in 15 days.....not sure how that works, but that's what he was told. You still have to give the 30 day notice no matter what.
In all actuality, if your behind on rent and your at the point of evicition, I would just move out! You are supposed to give 30 days notice though. I am a property manager and we would rather have someone move out and lose their deposit than have to file evicition paperwork, go to court and have the poilce come and evict you. It is very costly and if we go through that process, you will be billed for all of it including the behind rent and any damages to the apartment and we can have your wages garnished for not paying also, even if your not working now we can do it when you restart working. So save yourself the time and money and just get out, most lanlords would rather have you out so they can get the apt rerented to someone who will pay rent! Hope this helps!
