Could I send a notice to vacate 30 days before the end of the lease?
Though this is dependant on the specific laws in your jurisdiction, generally, your recourse is somewhat limited and will depend on whether there was a lease in place or whether it was a month-to-month tenancy.If there was a lease in place, the tenant is responsible for the rent until the lease expires or you rent out the apartment (keep in mind that most jurisdictions will make you mitigate damages so you will need to prove that you tried to rent out the apartment as soon as you could).If it was a month-to-month tenancy, your damages would be a full month’s rent, or, the pro-rated rent for the time the apartment was empty if it was less than a month (ex. if the tenant moves out on 3/30 without notice and you are able to rent out the apartment on 4/15, you would be able to sue for unpaid rent for the period that the apartment was empty).The caveat here is that unless the security deposit covers your losses, you will have to sue for the money and then collect.

How do I get rid of a tenant with no lease renting on a month to month basis, after being give 30 day notice to vacate legal for when can I change locks?
As most of the answers have stated, the applicable law in your jurisdiction will determine the difficulty - there are attorneys that specialize in landlord-tenant law, and they have the machinery honed for the particular laws in your area. If you want to DIY, start with the Nolo Press book for Landlords. It has all the forms and general instructions on how to proceed. The best method and cheapest is to induce the tenant to leave by making sure he understands that once he is force-ably evicted, he will have one hell if a time finding another landlord that will accept him. Almost all landlords now use one of the services that digs up all the dirt on a prospective tenant, and almost no Landlord will rent to anyone who has put another landlord in the position of having to pursue an eviction. The time tables are different in different jx. In Calif its 3 days on defaults and 60 days if the tenant has been in possession for more than a year. Other states it’s 7 days before a NOTICE OF DEFAULT can be served. If the the tenant not is not in default, many states now required a 60 day notice. If the tenat ignores the notice, then you proceed with the action by serving a notice of default for failure to vacate, Never enter into any kind of murky agreement oral or written, that can be interpreted as giving the tenant any sort of option in any way - this automatically can be used to defeat a summary proceeding for eviction - then your looking at months of litigation in a complex case that can be stalled for a long time. Never do anything that will allow the tenant to raise a counter claim like changing the locks or turning off the utilities - he can then counter for punitive damages, vindictive eviction, you name it. These all add to time required to recover possession. The secret of success on a summary proceeding is to follow the prescribed procedure precisely - make sure the tenant and all other occupants are properly served - any defect in the service and you will have to start all over. If a tenant fights the eviction, usually you won’t get possession in any time less than two months from the date you first served the first notice.
What happens if a room partner wants to break lease and move out without much prior notice? How it will impact other people in lease?
This assumes all three are on the lease:Those who remain will have to pick up the slack and pay for the lease. Sometimes leaving room mates is unavoidable, but the one who leaves has an ethical financial responsibility to the 2 who remain and a legal one to the landlord.A court might determine after the fact that the legal responsibility applies to the 2 deserted room mates, too. One exception to this could be if the 2 who remain caused the 3rd to leave.Regardless, the landlord is not going to accept 2/3 of the rent and will evict the 2 remaining if they can’t pay the rent. He will then probably sue all 3 in court if the rent is not paid in full. So it is to the 3rd party’s advantage to do the right thing here.All three should try as hard as they can to find an eligible and agreeable room mate to take the 3rd’s place as soon as possible. And the 3rd should share in the rent expense until the new room mate is found.
What is the best way to advertise your GoFundMe page?
This may be the most spam filled thread in the history of Quora. 305 and counting. Want to be successful with GoFundMe? Don't be like these people and spam completely inappropriate places with your funding link. Assemble your target list of people you'll be looking for funding from. Unless you have an interesting story that news media will pick up (hint: you almost certainly do not) your target list is your friends, family, fans, and personal/professional networks. There are not random charitable sorts just looking for a crowdfunding page to donate to. You will not be getting support outside of your own networks. Create a convincing and sympathetic narrative for your funding page. Remember, your friends and family already know you. They don't need your life story. Get to the point, and sell them on your unique need. (Pro tip: Get someone else from your social circle to start and pitch the campaign. People are much more likely to support a community call to action for a friend.) Launch the campaign with a huge blast. Your first few hours are vital. You need it being spread around your network fast and you need a solid pool of initial donors. As more people back the campaign and spread the word enthusiastically, no one will want to be the one scrooge that didn't back it. Use the power of peer pressure. As much as you need to sell it to your closest circle to back right away, you also need to get them to keep blasting it out to on Facebook and Twitter and email and Tumblr and everywhere else. The message is much better conveyed by others than you yourself. Don't post your campaign to Quora or Craigslist or other inappropriate places.
