Chapter 2. Hiring of Real Property - California Civil Code Section 1946

1946.  A hiring of real property, for a term not specified by the
parties, is deemed to be renewed as stated in Section 1945, at the
end of the term implied by law unless one of the parties gives
written notice to the other of his or her intention to terminate the
same, at least as long before the expiration thereof as the term of
the hiring itself, not exceeding 30 days; provided, however, that as
to tenancies from month to month either of the parties may terminate
the same by giving at least 30 days' written notice thereof at any
time and the rent shall be due and payable to and including the date
of termination. It shall be competent for the parties to provide by
an agreement at the time the tenancy is created that a notice of the
intention to terminate the same may be given at any time not less
than seven days before the expiration of the term thereof. The notice
herein required shall be given in the manner prescribed in Section
1162 of the Code of Civil Procedure or by sending a copy by certified
or registered mail addressed to the other party. In addition, the
lessee may give the notice by sending a copy by certified or
registered mail addressed to the agent of the lessor to whom the
lessee has paid the rent for the month prior to the date of the
notice or by delivering a copy to the agent personally. The notice
given by the lessor shall also contain, in substantially the same
form, the following:

   "State law permits former tenants to reclaim abandoned personal
property left at the former address of the tenant, subject to certain
conditions. You may or may not be able to reclaim property without
incurring additional costs, depending on the cost of storing the
property and the length of time before it is reclaimed. In general,
these costs will be lower the sooner you contact your former landlord
after being notified that property belonging to you was left behind
after you moved out."
