    Thanks for your reply. That is how we understand it works as well, but I find it confusing with the term 'calendar month'.

    Thank you very much. But I'm still not sure how to interpret 'calendar month'. Can I assume that if we give notice on the 3rd August, we shall pay rent to the 3rd September?
    Or does it mean we can only give notice on or before the date the payment is due (which according to our expired contract is the 1st in each month). So that would mean we would have to pay for the whole of August plus for the whole of September?
    So what does 'calendar month' actually mean?

    One calendar month means a month.

    is your landlord/landlady a local Chinese person?

    If yes, you should just simply pick up the phone and say something nice.

    Most local people (especially those over the age of 50) do not require 100% strict compliance with the contract.

    Saying thank you and something nice will very likely works.

    Of course its the former. Do you think people only ever leave their apartments on the same day of the month they pay their rent? Is this the first time you've ever rented an apartment?!
