Dilemma: I plan to break up with my boyfriend but we live together. Our lease is up at the end of May. I know that the right thing to do would be to tell him now so he has time to find an apartment (I've started looking for one). What is the right thing to do here?

The break up part is solidified in my mind so there is no going back on that. I would like to do the right thing and hopefully salvage our friendship in the long-term, but what's more important is that I want to do right by him now. Should I tell him today? Wait till the end of March? Is a month notice unfair? I can always move out a month early, and pay through the end of the lease if I have to. I'm torn about this. Please advise.
