A normal lease runs from the 1st to the 30th or 31st, with the first month being prorated daily. It is rare that a lease starting after the 1st would end on the same day, not the end of a month. One month's notice seems sufficient, but it would depend on how a lease month is defined in your lease. I would need to see your lease to give a better response.
