Iowa: 30 day notice by Rochelle on July 22, 2018 @00:49

                              
Tenant whom is on a month to month lease provided an adequate 30 day notice to vacate however, has not surrendered the unit of given keys back. Since tenant provided notice, does landlord still have to go through eviction process?

Yes, if you really want the T out, you will have to go thru the eviction process. You must now give the T a "Notice to Quit", and then file in court for possession if they do not move. Please talk to an attorney about this. Essentially, you will be telling the T to please conform to the 30 day notice. However, in Iowa, all 30 day notices start on the day rent is due. So when was rent due each month, and for what 30 day period?

Please give us some details. Depending on the dates, and with the way our laws read, it may already be too late to file for an eviction in this month. You said the 30 day notice was "adequate". Did the T hand you a written and dated 30 day notice, on or before the last months rent was paid, did you accept that notice, and how was the acceptance communicated to the T. As you can see, this could get "sticky" in a court of law, which is why I said you need to contact an attorney. By the way, if you accepted ANY rent, after the 30 day notice had expired, the 30 day notice was nullified.

She gave notice. After the 30 days expires go change the locks when she leaves. You have documentation.
