No. Your landlord is never required to renew your lease, and doesn't need a reason to not renew. Consequently, your tenancy will end at the end of the lease, and you must leave. A non-renewal is not an eviction, so Covid rules are completely irrelevant.
I currently rent through an LLC, have been in this home for 10+ years. Spoke with the property manager who claims I was not on a yearly lease and that my month to month was no longer going to be honored. Please bear in mind I did know I was on a month to month. I am not behind on rent even through... Read more »
A landlord can terminate a month-to month tenancy with 15 days notice (the notice must be a valid written notice delivered according to the requirements of the Lease or statute). Termination of a tenancy is not an eviction, so none of the COVID rules, regulations or pronouncements from on high have...Read more »
Pr county website he has seen, No order/ judgement taken. I received notice of termination of month to month tenancy. On June 4th it Says rental of property has to be surrendered by 6/30/2021. This paper is not from a lawyer, court or service processor? Is this legal.
You are a month to month tenant, which means that the LL can terminate your lease with 15 days notice. You are not being evicted, so Covid has nothing to do with it. A landlord's notice that your tenancy is not being extended another month is not a document that comes via the court system. Its...Read more »
Landlord states I’m past due and owe 3200. last payment was 3000$ with stimulus money. I have three minor children, one of whom is diagnosed with a disability and receives SSD. Is the moratorium still valid on non payment due to COVID-19 hardship? I am SE EMPL, receive unemployment, have applied... Read more »
No, I don't believe the moratorium is still in effect. Basically, having already given you notice, what the landlord needs to do is file a complaint with the court and schedule a hearing. At or before that hearing, you must deposit the past due rent and other charges with the court. If you...Read more »
I moved into a nice, upscale apartment in Florida a few months back. I came home one day and my roommate had emptied his storage unit into the living room. It was so absurd you couldn't even walk through all the stuff. I told him this was unacceptable to which he replied, "They cant evict... Read more »
It is not clear what you want to sue them for; your roommate has too much furniture and he installed cameras which you took down already. I don't see how the furniture or the camera would be grounds for a lawsuit, but if the leasing company "offered to let [you] out of the lease if [you]...Read more »
If you have a lease with the old landlord, the new owner must honor your lease. When your lease expires, you must leave unless the new owner and you enter into a new lease. The owner is not obligated in any way to let you stay 1 minute after your lease expires. It's up to you to find a new...Read more »
Probably until the end of March, but the new owner must give you notice. Assuming notice is furnished according to the statute, the answer is yes - you can be forced out, Covid or no covid. It doesn't matter if you've been there 15 years or 15 days. Selling the house "as is" has...Read more »

Feb 2021 recd ltr from apts stating owed from Sept through present. Does student have to pay after... Read more »
It depends upon the notice provisions in the original lease (rental agreement), specifically how long of a notice of non-renewal the student/tenant must give. And, of course, this is assuming that the January/February and May notices by the tenant were in writing.
I rent a single home in Florida and the owner's realtor is having showings and I feel it's a safety risk to my health having 60 people coming to the house. I have a compromised health issue and I fear getting sick and in 1 day the realtor allowed 60 people to walk around the house. Is... Read more »
While I can see why you are concerned, as far as I have heard or read about, none of the provisions in the federal government's PPP or stimulus legislation provides tenants any protection from this unique situation. However, since it appears that your landlord is trying hard to sell the house...Read more »

The property may be tied up in probate or the personal representative of the estate may be waiting for you to vacate to fix the property up to sell, but that does not mean you cannot be evicted once the lease expires. If an eviction action is filed against you, you will have a trouble finding any...Read more »
I am a landlord on a month to month lease agreement with a tenant that states she or I have to give 30 days notice to terminate the lease. She recently painted my home without my approval. I expressed my dismay to her, and told her she should have received my permission, first. She promptly cursed... Read more »
Yes, but you must give her proper notice. You should probably consult with a lawyer to make certain things are done correctly. Screw this up, and you could be looking at paying her attorney's fees as well as not being able to get rid of her. If you are in the business of renting property,...Read more »
Unless you have a current written lease your landlord can increase the rent at any time. They may no be able to evict you because of the Covid-19 situation; however, Covid-19 does not prevent rent increases.
My lease expired in 2019 and I received a month to month lease with the expectation of purchasing the home but due to COVID everything was pushed back. Owner said I could stay until Pandemic is over. Sept. 11,2020 I received a notice to vacate October 31,2020. My lease states terminating this... Read more »
I have been in the home 8 years and have been paying $85 a month for lawn maintenance and as well have paid for many repairs as Ac and screen enclosure damaged due to past hurricane and the landlord was well aware of it and told me a few times his Repair man will be free to do repairs up to two... Read more »
Unless your lease requires him to provide AC, he is not required to fix your AC when it goes out. You have no right to fix things on your own without his written permission and then expect to be reimbursed. Same thing with the lawn. If the lease requires you to maintain the lawn, you have no reason...Read more »
Unfortunately, the temporary anti-eviction protections given to residential tenants in the CARES Act have expired, leaving tenants such as yourself without any protection from eviction. So you have four more days in which to file your answer to the notice, after which time (but not immediately)...Read more »
Covid doesn't give you an excuse for not paying. Suppose you lost business for any other reason - you'd be in the exact same position. You owe rent until your lease is expired or (if you have vacated the space and returned possession to the landlord) he finds a new tenant.
