A 30-day notice cannot be withdrawn unilaterally. The landlord must agree to continue the tenancy beyond the 30-days given in your notice. You can try to settle with your landlord by agreeing to vacate by a particular date and offer to pay the rent through a proposed vacate date. Landlord may want his costs and attorney fees to be paid but that is negotiable. You should obtain specific advice from an attorney.
