A: The amount of notice a landlord must give a tenant for a lease non-renewal can vary greatly depending on the jurisdiction. Generally, for a year-long lease, landlords are often required to provide tenants with a notice period before the lease ends if they do not intend to renew it. This period can range from 30 to 90 days, but the specific time frame is determined by local laws and regulations.

It's crucial for both tenants and landlords to familiarize themselves with the laws governing rental agreements in their area. This knowledge can help avoid any misunderstandings or legal issues related to lease non-renewal notices. Landlords should ensure they comply with the required notice period to avoid infringing on tenants' rights.

Tenants receiving a non-renewal notice should use the notice period to seek alternative housing. If there's any confusion about the notice period or if a tenant feels their rights have been violated, seeking advice from a legal advisor or tenant's association might be beneficial. Understanding your rights and obligations is key to navigating the end of a lease agreement smoothly.
