if your LL appears to be the good-natured sort, i bet giving him 2 month's notice will be fine. since there is no lease signed, you are a de facto month-to-month renter and need only give 30 days notice, but the more notice you can give, the better. of course, without any written lease you have less evidence of the sec deposit, but if you have some sort of a receipt for it, you should be able to get it back without much trouble. you might ask the LL if you can use the deposit for the last month's rent. put it all down in a letter given to the LL so it's all in writing. if the LL is not of good temper, you'll probably have to lean on the fact there is no official lease in effect. if he has no legal proof of your lease, he can't make you stay beyond a 30-days notice situation.
