filthy tenant by Anonymous on September 27, 2017 @19:55

If a tenant is filthy and you have a month to month lease, can you not renew the lease just because the term is 30 days? And not give a particular reason. Just send the non-renewal of lease form?

If the tenant is "filthy"? due to a mental disability, then you need to proceed with caution to avoid any violation of the Fair Housing Act. Maybe G can give you the correct procedure required under law if this is the case with your tenant.

Some States do require a reason to be given for ending a rental agreement. This might be a requirement of your State?

If it is month to month, then you can simply notify the tenant in writing that the tenancy will end of the last day of the current lease period....which is one month.

You do not have to give a reason.

For most rentals, a reason is not needed. However, there are some exceptions depending on the type of rental and the state the rental is in.

Also, not all states use a 30 day period to give notice on month-to-month. I do not believe there are any states that require more than 30 days, but some are only 15 days.

Since you did not indicate a state, you should check your state statutes. It is also just a good idea to know where to find them and to familiarize yourself with them.

What state? Even though you may have a month-to-month, in some states [Oregon, for example] if occupancy has been more that one year, even if MTM, a 60 day notice is required. No reason must be given.
