    How much notice do you have to give in advance to your roomates before you move if you are not on the lease.

    One month or two months?

    lee <-- needs to move!

    I would say 2 months that way they will have ample time to find a new roomate if they choose

    Kyfe >No I won't help you move....:D

    2 months is the general minimum, although if your not on the lease, I dont know if there would be a legal requirement.
    but out of respect for your roommate, I'd stick to the 2 month minimum.

    Well since we all know you're an asshole poker face, I'm pretty sure if you gave them a week they'd be happy to see you go :D

    But the standard is 60 days on most places...

    Lee - a month should be ample time for them to find another roomate.

    Just ask the pro..... you know it!!! ;)

    If you are NOT on a lease and you did NOT pay first & last the standard would be 30 days. However, it depends on the agreement you had with you roommates, if you even discussed it.

    30 days is suffiencient under the circumstances but I'd say it depends what kind of relationship you have with them and what kind of relationship you want to maintain with them.

    Unless you know there's people lined up outside to take a look at the place, I wouldn't recommend NO notice ;)

    I wouldn't worry about giving 60 days unless you really think it will create a problem. There really is no guidelines in the Tenant Protection act that outlines shared accomodations. Like I said before, it's completely dependant on your current relationship with them and the relationship you may want to maintain after you move.

    :D Good luck

    ^^^ Thanks Leogirl!

    I think I know my answer now!

    I am not friends with them, I did not leave first and last months rent and this new place is killer. And I can play records when ever I want, so see ya!
