Once I notify my landlord that I want to end my lease, do I still have to pay rent?

If you end your lease because of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking, you are not liable for any rent after the date on which the 7-day or 30-day notice expires or after the date that you actually leave the rental unit, whichever is later. However, if you have already prepaid your rent, the landlord is not obligated to return that money to you.1
