I have received notice that my landlord is not going to renew my lease. According to the terms of the lease, the landlord must provide a thirty (30) day notice that the lease will not be renewed. Does the landlord have to give me a reason for not renewing my lease?

No, a private landlord is not required to give a reason for refusing to renew a lease unless

the

lease

so

requires.

The

landlord

can

sef to

renew

a

lease

for

any

reason

but

cannot

discriminate based on race, color,disability, religion, nationality,or because children are in the

household.

A

private

landlord

merely

has

to

give

the

tennotice

of

non-renewal

or

other

notice as required under the lease. If there is no written lease, the landlord has to give the tenant

a sixty (60) day notice to terminate the tenancy.

My lease is not up for another six months. I am being transferred by my employer. What

Generally, a tenant is not

allowed to terminate their lease because they er transferred by their e ployer or because they

are

purchasing

get

terminate

the

lease

early.

There

may

be

a

proion

that

allows

you

to

terminate

prior

to

the

lease's expiration. If so, you will need to followthe terms of that lease provision. For example,

you

may

be

required

to

give

a

thirty

(30)

day tice

and

forfeit

your

security

deposit.

Some

leases impose additional penalti s for early termination and requre longer notice periods. You

are responsible for paying rent during the notic period. Your lease is not terminated until the

notice period expires and you vacate the property.

I notified my landlord that I would be terminating the lease early. According to the lease, I must pay the equivalent of one month's rent in order to terminate the lease early. Am I required to pay the early termination fee even if the landlord did not lose a month's rent?

Where the lease identifies an amount that mustbe paid if the lease is terminated before it

expires, a tenant can generally be charged that amount. If the paries to the lease agree what the

damages for early termination will be, the damags are said to be liquidated. Such lease terms
