Tenant Rights

It is advantageous for all tenants to gain an understanding of their rights and responsibilities. This will help prevent disputes and misunderstandings with a landlord, as well as give tenants direction on how to solve problems and enforce their rights.

Tenant Rights

A landlord is under no legal obligation to renew a private lease. The only exceptions to this are situations involving retaliation and discrimination. Usually, a landlord can refuse to renew a lease and not give a reason.

A landlord and tenant are required to give notice of renewal or non-renewal as specified in the lease. The law of giving a one month’s notice applies to a “no lease” tenancy only. Always read a lease carefully to find the notice clause. Usually, it will either be a one or two month’s notice corresponding to the day the lease ends.
