So what's the question? Did you not have a written or oral lease? If all you have is new landlord accepting rent then you are a monthly tenant, entitled to a full calendar month's notice. A notice given on September 10 would "speak" as of October 1 and your month to month tenancy would end November 1. And the notice is very technical. Very easy to make a "jurisdictional" error.
