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.
