What happens if a rental agreement expires?

I recently signed a rental agreement for an apartment. The agreement was for a one year lease and it is now coming close to the expiration date. I am wondering what are my rights and obligations if the agreement expires. I am concerned that the landlord may try to keep me in the apartment longer than I am legally obligated to stay.

When your lease expires, then it is over unless you sign a new lease or fail to give your landlord a 30-day notice. Send your notice and move out when before the lease expires, which could be the last day of the lease.
