I have been living in apartment complex with two other roommates without any issues for two years, paying our rent on time. We were initially on a yearly lease and have since switched to a month to month lease. I was planning on leaving and found a replacement. We have had no issues with replacements in the past and have done it 3 times in the last two years. The landlord this time didn't respond for around a week or so and instead served us a 60 day eviction notice without cause.
The city is not under rent control laws and we are on a month to month lease so the 60 day notice seems legal. However, I was planning to leave and had indicated this in writing to my roommates and my landlord a while back. What are my rights in this case? Do I still have to continue to pay rent if my roommates want to stay to the end of the notice? Do I get my security deposit back? Also, does the notice to quit go on our record if its without cause and we have been paying rent?
