Normally under the laws of all states in this country a tenant or landlord can terminate a lease by giving the other party 30 days notice that the lease will end withing that time period or longer. The only exception is if the written lease a party has states a longer time period.

From what you have written, your landlord has given you legally enough time to let you know that your lease will not be renewed unless your lease say a different time of notice is required.
