How do I write a 30 day notice to landlord?
Just be up front and do something simple, like:"DATE HEREMr/Ms/Mrs Name HereI wish to thank you for being a good landlord. After a lot of thought, I'm afraid the home I'm in now no longer fits my needs. As per the requirements of my lease, this is my 30 day notice that I will be leaving on INSERT DATE HERE. I will turn in my keys to you on that date. I ask that you perform a move out inspection in my presence so that I can verify any issues you may find during the inspection, and so that I may have an opportunity to fix the problems before you decide to deduct the costs from my security deposit.Again, I thank you for being such a good landlord. I would definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a place to move to.Sincerely,Your Name Here"I would make two copies of it, and probably send the landlord's copy via certified mail so that they cannot say they did not receive it.Hope this helps.D
When tenants give landlords 30-60 day written notice that they'll pull out of the lease, are they required by law to find replacement tenants?
let me speak from the perspective of southern florida… we have multiple answersif I made the lease:if you were a nasty person to me —-then on page 8 or 9 it state’s you’ll pay 2 months worth of damages for breaking the lease. thanks for giving me the heads up. and you still won’t get your security deposit back unless I first get into the unit. and I will get the 2 months for sure.If you were human to me —-then I’ll chat with you about page 8 or 9, and ask you for reasonable access to get a tenant. most likely I’ll find one on time, and you’ll eat the commision I had to pay to get it rented and since I had access, all of your security deposit is returned because I pointed out the damage that was fixable and you fixed it.most tenants understand the issues, so they will get a replacement tenant with the right qualification, and you won’t get a bill for lease terms breakage.
Is it against the law in California if a landlord hides the fact that a place is only available for 60 days when signing a month-to-month lease and then gives the new tenant a 30-day notice to vacate after he has moved in for only 30 days?
An obvious risk to both landlord and tenant is that either can terminate at any time, on 30 days notice and there is nothing illegal or actionable by either landlord or tenant not disclosing an intention to end it soon than the other may anticipate.Now, if by hide you mean that the landlord affirmatively mislead the tenant with words that the apartment would be available for a longer term when they knew that not to be true, that may be found to be misrepresentation and subject the landlord to damages.If a tenant wants to be assured of a a certain duration then they must negotiate for that and sign a lease for a minimum term.I don’t like what the landlord did, and would note that tenants may do the same thing. The landlord may select a tenant over other applicants not know that the tenant plans it to be a short term rental. I don’t like that either. I’d prefer people disclose what they know will likely be important to the other party.
What are the consequences of not honoring a 30-day move out notice I gave to my landlord?
Read your lease, it is a legal contract. Without 30 days notice, It is likely landlord can demand another month's rent,and enforce it with your security deposit AND ADDITIONAL FOR DAMAGE REPAIR.If you are inexperienced, get an older fart to read your lease to bring reality into your thinking -- we all tend to interpret contracts in our favor and get angry ans shocked when other opibions are closer to legal reality.THIS IS FAIR BECAUSE YOUR 30 DAY NOTICE IS LANDLORD'S OPPORTUNITY TO PREPARE/REPAIR THE PROPERTY TO KEEP HIS INCOME CONSTANT AND KEEP RENT REASONABLE AND COMPETETIVE.This is also fair because you signed the agreement !The more you help your landlorg get the property ready. The better treatment you will get -- offer easy stuff like moving your belongings around so owned can get earliest sccess and get ahead on inspection and getting repairs planned and even started . If you damsged sheetrock, you could spackle it flush and save the owner a half day painters visit $200.00 bare minimum if you invesr $15. Window washing? Super clean. Let owner inspect and maybe negotiate stiff you couls do. (Assuming you can do quality work. If rou ruined something, consider replacing itHe is gonna chatge you for it anyway and you could save his monleying sround to replace an $10.00 lamp sconse. You might do it cheaper, especially if you review your proposed fixes to meer owner's quality needs.There is some psychology involved -- showing owner you want to help his success will affect his attitude toward you. And yes, there are bad landlords. You have to make judgements but your assessment will be better if you talk to owner.
Does a landlord need to give a 30 day vacate notice before proceeding to evict?
It may depend on the state where you live, and on the situation.In Texas, only 3 full days are required… the landlord can file on the fourth day if he wants.If you are month-to-month AND you have done nothing wrong, the landlord can require you to move by giving at least 30-days notice. It can be for any reason or no reason at all. You are a Tenant At Sufferance.But if you have done anything wrong (like late rent), that’s out the window and he’s back to an immediate 3-day eviction notice.If you’re willing to get all your belongings stacked at the curb by strangers, and have a judgment against you for 10 years, you can wait out the entire eviction process, which takes about six weeks in Texas.Once you have failed to comply with a 3-day eviction notice and a suit is filed, it moves forward after that, even if you pay up everything you owe while waiting for trial or move out while waiting.In some other states, putting you and all you own out to the curb takes significantly longer, but you still have the downsides mentioned above when the dust settles.
California Rental Law: How much notice is my landlord required to give on a month to month contract on a place we've leased for over a year?
If all of the occupants have lived in the home for at least one year then California does require 60 days written notice to terminate a month to month lease. I don't think verbal notice will cut it according to the state handbook.However, only 30 days is required if he has a contract to sell and is in escrow. There are a few more requirements on his part to qualify for this exception. Is the place currently on the market?You could wait for the six weeks to run out and then request 60 days written notice but you're just inviting problems with the landlord.My advice would be to offer to pay extra to keep the rental until you need it. A couple hundred extra a month for 6 months might be all the incentive he needs but keep in mind he's probably trying to sell before winter so he might not go for it at any price.If he agrees, get it in writing. Don't rely on his word.If he refuses, look for an alternate solution. There are usually corporate housing options in most urban and suburban areas.Good Luck!Domenick | AccidentalRental
I didn't sign my 30 day notice to my landlord. Is it still good?
It’s fairly unlikely that whether you signed the notice or not will be material, more material would be the method by which you delivered it to the landlord and what the notice itself said.A typical lease provision (or statutory default in the absence of a lease) will just refer to “notice”, which may not even require written notice much less any signed document. Giving written notice is helpful for proof of what the notice said later. Signing a document is evidence in support of authentication, and so it’s a good idea, but it is not the only possible such evidence.Unfortunately, we couldn’t give you actual advice on that without (1) being licensed in the jurisdiction where this is happening, (2) agreeing to accept you for a confidential consulation, and (3) reading the lease and thirty-day notice in question, at a minimum.Another party who could give you a relevant opinion on the “validity” of your notice would be the landlord. If they have accepted the notice, it won’t be likely to matter if it’s “valid”, conversely if they are going to give you a hard time, you might as well find that out now.
