Lease Non-Renewal Notice Information:

A Lease Non-Renewal Notice gives the Tenant notice that the Landlord does not wish to renew the lease agreement at the end of the lease agreement. The Notice or Letter usually provides the Tenant with a set amount of time to vacate the premises. A Landlord or Tenant may choose not to renew the lease for any reason, except for discrimination or retaliation. However, the Landlord does not need to specify in the letter the specific reason that it is not renewing the lease agreement. If the Landlord wishes they made include the specific reason, though not necessary.

The Notice of Non-Renewal must be sent within a set amount of time prior to the lease end. The exact amount of time that the notice must be send prior to the lease end varies based on the terms of the Lease Agreement and state specific laws where the premises is located. If the notice is not sent with the sufficient amount of time the Landlord may be in violation of local laws.

The Notice of Lease Non-Renewal may be sent via mail, hand delivered or sent via certified mail, return receipt requested. However, there may be local laws that dictate how a notice must be delivered. Generally speaking, you will want to send the Notice with return receipt requested or hand deliver, in order to have proof that sufficient time was provided to the Tenant. This will help avoid potential problems with the Tenant.

The Tenant is obligated to pay the Landlord the rent until the date that the Premises is vacated. The Tenant will return any keys or fabs used to access the Premises. In addition, the Landlord will return the security deposit, less any amount for damages to the Premises, other than normal wear and tear. The Tenant should provide the Landlord with a forwarding address in order to receive the security deposit and any other further notices or letters.

It is also possible that a Tenant may decide to move and not to renew the lease at the lease end. For example, if a Tenant decides to move to a different area or needs a larger place. The Tenant may do so by sending the Landlord, within the appropriate time period, a notice to vacate the premises. If a tenant does not send the notice within the exact number of days as required, the Tenant may be liable to the Landlord for additional rent.
