I just moved from Michigan to Florida, and my years lease was up in Nov. 1997, but while still living in Michigan for the month of December, they had me sign a month to month lease.( Which I thought Michigan law states that after a lease is up, it automatically turns into a month to month agreement?) I was not able to give a 30 days notice and my move out date was Dec. 31, 1997. My old land lord has my move out date written down as January 5, 1998 and is now charging me for the month of January, when in fact they told me I needed to vacate the premises on Dec.31st at noon. (Which I did) What I need to know is why I'm being charged rent on an apartment that I was told to vacate at a specific time and date?? Just what is month to month lease, and how does it work differently from a years lease?
I just don't feel that it's right for me to have to pay rent on an apartment I no longer live in. What are my rights??? Please help!!
