If I gave my notice to move out of my apartment on time but management says that they did not receive it, what do I do?
My apartment complex require 60-day notice to move out. I gave handwritten notice on time in July. I took it to the office myself. I received a notice yesterday stating that I did not give timely notice and that I would either have to incur month-to-month rate at double the rent, or renew my lease. I don't have the money to do either, that's why I am moving. What can I do?
You can fight them. Did you by any chance get a receipt or a name to whom you gave the notice? Start with that. Just keep insisting that you gave it to so and so or describe the person and indicate that you told that person that it was your 60 day notice. Some states allow double rent after a certain event such as after the expiration of a notice to quit. Wisconsin does. Georgia may. But do not give a months rent after the expiration of the lease because if it is accepted it implies another 1 year lease in Georgia. I would go down to your local Landlord Tenant court and ask about the double rent. In the meantime, keep packing. And keep insisting. Good luck.
