Q: Over 6 months ive received 3letters for a non renewal of my lease is this discrimination?

Everytime there has been an issue i have taken care of it. Ive lived here since 2015 and never had a problem until new manager came. then the last 6 months on three seperate occasions i have revieved a letter for a non renewal of my lease. I asked why she gave me a reason and i resolved it every time. The last one i got today i asked for why and she said she just decided to not renew it.

A: There is not a specific North Dakota statute that requires a landlord to renew your lease. Generally, a tenant's best chance to challenge the refusal to renew is if the refusal to renew was based on discrimination. There could be a chance to prevent a refusal to renew if it is on public policy grounds.

This is general legal information, and I am unable to render adequate legal advice without first discussing at length the facts and circumstances regarding the matter. Good luck!
