Legal Question in Real Estate Law in Missouri

I am no longer under lease in my apt. After talking with property management and finding out they are raising my rent without notice and them charging me 100 more because I have no lease. I am choosing to move. They are saying I must give them 60 days notice and I was wondering if that was correct or is 30 days an option.

If your lease had ended (and if had not automatically renewed) and you were paying your rent monthly thereafter, you are required to give notice one period ahead. That is if rent was due on the first of October, Notice of your decision to terminate on September 30th would be effective for leaving October 31st. If you give Notice on October 2, you are obligated to pay rent through November 30th. Check your lease. Although it may have expired, it might still be effective as to holdover time and other terms of your otherwise month-to-month lease, after the termination date.

Good luck
