If you are a month to month tenant then a landlord must give you a minimum of 30 days notice to vacate.  The 30 days is calculated by starting the day after the rent would be due and ends midnight on the 30th day (unless it is a Sunday or legal holiday then it jumps to the next day). This is often calculated incorrectly so check with an attorney in your area.  Service also matters.  Good luck.
