Q: I had resolved prior lease violations can my landlord send me a non lease renewal notice due to resolved violations?

I already had an eviction notice for violations and I had taken care of them and my landlord signed off that they were resolved but now is sending me a non lease renewal notice for these violations that were already taken care of and signed off

A: Most likely your landlord can do this. The eviction notice is about forcing you to leave during a current lease. It seems that your previous actions resolved those issues so the eviction was not completed. Once a lease is complete, there is no legal obligation for the lease to continue unless the contract is extended through an agreement between the landlord and the tenant. In most cases, a landlord has no legal obligation to allow continued rental after a lease expires. Good luck.
