Real Property Law §232-a, which applies to New York City, states that the landlord has to give 30-days' written notice to cancel a month-to-month tenancy.
In the case of Torrence v. Barry, N.Y.L.J., February 24, 1999, page 29, col. 2, the Appellate Term, First Department reversed a housing court decision that held that the tenant had to give notice to terminate a month-to-month tenancy. The Appellate Term held that only the landlord had to give notice -- not the tenant.
: : In New York City, only the landlord has to give 30-days'written notice to terminate a month-to-month tenancy. The tenant doesn't have to give any notice at all. You'll probably have to sue your landlord in small claims court to get back your security deposit.
: I don't know where you got that idea. You can't just leave--notice is required for landlords and tenants.
: However, for this person it doesn't seem to matter much.
