OK-- I THINK I understand your situation. The lease ends July 31 but you received a notice from building management telling you to move out June 1.
I think you need to consult a California lawyer -- maybe a legal clinic can help you -- to address a few issues.
First, does that notice basically terminate the lease?
Secondly, is there a provision in the lease for attorneys fees? So if you say, screw you, I'm not paying July and June rent, that they wont hit you with attorneys fees?
Have they rerented the apartment? They cant sue you for rent if it has been, or will be, rerented.
If it was me, and there was no attorneys fee provision, I would let them sue. The notice might well have terminated the lease. You might want to pay for at least a consultation with a lawyer, since you may have some liability here.
