My tenants, whose lease expires June 30, told me at the beginning of this month that they will stay and sign a new lease. About 10 days later they told me they had a change of plans and will be moving out the end of this month. They have not paid me June's rent and asked if they could use their security for June's rent to which I replied they may not. Even though the lease expires June 30, do they still have to give me 30 days notice to, particularly since they first told me they were staying? --24.191.xx.xxx

Probably not - you need to establish a move-out routine - with a letter a month before the lease ends WITH your check-out instructions....if you did not offer them a new lease, you should have continued on the assumption they were leaving --184.5.xxx.xxx

Unfortunately the lease doesn't address renewal or non-renewal. It doesn't seem right that they could tell me they're staying and then mid-month say they're leaving--it doesn't give me enough time to find a tenant. I guess the question is can a tenant under a year lease wait until the very last day to give notice? If a month-to-month requires 30 days, shouldn't a fixed term lease also require 30 days even though there's a finite end date? --24.191.xx.xxx

@ zip [LA]: I thought about that, but what good does it do to file for eviction at this point since they'll be gone in 11 days? I have limited experience as a landlord, so I appreciate all the advice. Thanks. --24.191.xx.xxx

@Wallace CPM [VA]- I was under the assumption that they were going to renew as we negotiated and agreed upon a new price and terms for the new lease. They told me they were staying, but changed their minds almost 2 weeks later. Good idea about establishing a move-out routine. I guess this goes under the category "live and learn." --24.191.xx.xxx

Check your local laws, if your lease does not specify required notice the law will determine what is required. If you don't know for sure what the law says, contact your attorney and ask them.

As for eviction, you should file so you can get a judgement for the rent they owe and get them served while you still know where they are. --71.194.xxx.xxx

This is a question of your state law and your lease.

Is there any provision (under state law or the lease) for automatic renewal, conversion to a MTM?

If not, how can you complain about a lack of notice? 354 days ago, you and the tenants gave each other one year notice, didn't you? You mean you need a reminder? So if a T gives 60 days notice, the T has to remind you at Day Minus 30, or the 60 day notice is no good?

The problem here is that T said they would stay and then changed their minds. If T said "we will sign a new lease", then it seems that both you and Ts expected to need a written signed lease for the next year. So without such a signed document, there is no obligation. Kind of like a prospective tenant who says "I love the place, I'll take it", but you never have them sign a lease. Why didn't you have them sign a new lease during the two weeks that they wanted to stay?

Probably not [required to give you additional notice].

Generally (I don't know anything about NY) the lease expires on the expiration date. You had notice when you all signed the lease, of the expiration date. I don't expect that you would get very far by complaining in court that they renewed the lease.

And, you evidently allowed them to use SD for June rent, since they didn't pay and you took no action. Deduct the rent from the SD and get busy to find a new tenant.

If they don't pay June rent sue in small claims for rent and any damages on above the deposit. In the absence of a lease most states recognize that tenancy is then MTM and requires 30 day written notice for either party to terminate it --108.238.xxx.xxx

Really? They haven't paid June's rent? You're gonna take a bit of a bath on this one, David.

Landlording is a business and should be handled as such. --174.47.xxx.x
