Ask Amy: Can long-time landlord terminate my lease?


Dear Amy: My family and I have lived in our rented home for 10 years.

Our last lease expired in September, and we are now on a month-to-month lease. We’re fine with that and like our landlord a lot.

Well, last week, our landlord contacted us to say that he plans to renovate and sell our home this summer, and that we’ll need to move out by the end of May.

This feels abrupt and we’re upset. Can he do that?

Dear Family: You should check your lease and the tenant rights and regulations in your area (I’m not a lawyer), but my perspective is that – even though this seems abrupt to you, you are being given plenty of notice.

Because you are on a month-to-month lease, your landlord could have terminated your lease at the end of the month.

As it is, he is giving you several months’ lead time to find other housing.
