Nonrenewal Lease Letter

Nonrenewal Lease Letter

Discovered that the Current Tenants ARE NOT What You Want Anymore?

Advantages of the Nonrenewal Lease Letter

The nonrenewal lease letter is a type of lease termination notice for a soon expiring lease you want to end with your current tenants. Most tenants expect to renew the lease or stay "month to month" after the original lease expires, but this form tells them in a friendly yet business-like way to leave while not being harsh or too intimidating.

Nonrenewal lease letterOften we become "stuck" with tenants who may have started out alright, but start to go downhill after a while. We usually feel trapped into keeping them because it is just easier to put up with their annoyances than to replace them with a better tenant.

Landlord Tip

The time (30 -60 days) prior to lease expiration is the perfect opportunity to ask them to leave in a way that they feel they are not being ousted. The tenants know your obligation to them was for the term of the lease. You should not feel obligated to extend a lease and hold on to tenants who are not living up to their responsibilities or who are making your life more difficult than it has to be.

Key elements of The Notice of Lease Non-Renewal include:

  • Identification of the tenants and the premises (Include Tenants Social Security # if possible)
  • Confirms agreed notice period (60 or 30 days).
  • Reminds the tenants of their responsibility to cooperate with owner/manager in showing of the premises.
  • Reminds tenants of the agreed vacating procedure as in lease.
  • daily holdover penalty the tenant must pay if they do not leave by the deadline.
  • An area is provided for an explanation for why the notice is being given (in many cases the tenants already know why they're being asked to leave)
This notice also warns the tenants that if they don't comply, their credit is at risk. Hopefully, you have tenants who value their credit. Just as with a Termination of Tenancy or Renewal, this form should be legally served to the tenant, mailed certified and regular mail.
