If you do not have a written lease for the unit that you are renting, then under the laws of all states in this country you are presumed to be on a month-to-month lease. If you want to end your lease, you need to give your landlord a written 30 day notice of termination of your lease.

Once done, you have the 30 days to move out where your landlord cannot kick you out before this time has run.
