Me an my wife are currently renting an apartment from a landlord. However, our lease was up in June, and we have conitnued to live in the apartment without having signed another lease; we have asked them many times about getting a lease signed. Anyway, we found another apartment to move to. Are we justified in leaving, given that we never signed another lease, or is there something else we need to consider?

Since there is nothing in writing I would simply give the landlord 30 days notice and then leave. There is no evidence of a lease and you have given him an opportunity to get a written lease signed and he has choosen not to take it. Hopefully you do not have any problems getting your deposit back.
If you do have problems then feel free to contact me, free of charge, at either email@example.com or at 330-447-7634.
