Q: 30 day termination of tenancy
If I have tenants thats lease has expired (expired in may) and they are now month to month can I give them a 30 day notice to vacate since they aren’t willing to sign a new lease? They have been behind on rent the last 4 months on their month to month but recently got caught up.
A: Yes. You can provide the tenants with a 30 day Notice to Quit once the lease has expired. Generally speaking, and barring any provision to the contrary that makes the lease automatically renewable, upon the expiration of an annual lease, the lease becomes a month to month lease.
Kenneth V Zichi agrees with this answer
I concur, you can give a 30 day notice for ANY (or no) reason. HOWEVER, be sure you do it right. If you don't give appropriate notice either by missing a deadline or 'rushing' the move out date or not including all the required statutory language it will be 'defective' and you'll have to start all over with the process adding delay into the mix.
