In the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Barb has been living in an apartment complex in which her lease is month-to-month. The rent is not prorated based on the number of days in the month; each month, she owes the same X amount of rent regardless of the number of days in the respective month.
The complex required a 60-day notice to be given by a tenant who wants to move out. Barb gave a 60-day notice on April 30, 2021. 60 calendar days would fall on June 29, 2021 (i.e. 31 days of May + 29 days of June = 60 days).
However, Barb was charged full month’s rent on June 1 for the month of June, and, according to the agreement, not a prorate amount (i.e., not ((X/30)*29)).
Barb thereafter was told that her move out date was June 29, 2021. Which takes precedence? Considering that Barb has paid the rent for the full month, will she have been imposed a duty to leave before June 30, 2021 since they gave such notice? Will Barb get to stay for the remainder of the month without engaging in any unlawful conduct?
