State Specific Clauses
WA State Assist
- Periodic Lease: May be terminated by either party giving the other a written notice at least 20 days prior to the end of the rental period.
- Fixed Term Lease: The tenancy generally terminates automatically on the last day of the lease period without any notice required from either party. However, the parties may agree in the lease that the tenant or landlord must give notice of an intent to either continue or end the tenancy.
Changing Lease Provisions
Month-to-Month Agreements: If the landlord wants to change the provisions of a month-to-month rental agreement, such as raising the rent or changing rules, the tenant must be given at least 30 days notice in writing. (Less notice is not allowed under the law.) These changes can only become effective at the beginning of a rental period (the day the rent is due).
Condominiums: If the landlord wishes to convert the unit to a condominium the tenant must be given a 90-day notice.
Leases: Under a lease, in most cases, changes cannot be made unless both landlord and tenant agree to the proposed change.
Please Note: The Landlord-Tenant Act does not limit how much rent can be raised, or how often. However, the landlord cannot raise the rent to retaliate against a tenant.
Even though more often than not, ending a lease can provide to be a touchy situation; this form provides a sensitive but direct way to accomplish this task. It even provides reminders to the tenant to remove all belongings, make sure all is clean and asks for a forwarding address.
These Premium ezLandlord Forms's "Non Renewal Notice” is the key in properly informing your tenant that you are no longer interested in continuing the current contract or any contract or lease for that matter. This is NOT a form used to increase rent or change the terms of a lease. For those circumstances, it is best to use either a new rental agreement, Lease Amendment or an ezLandlordForms’s Increase in Rent Notice.
Each state possesses specific rules and actions in order to end a lease. There are many reasons to end a lease such as nuisance or non-payment, but an eviction form is best suited for those circumstances. This letter is given to a lessee so that they will move out rather than stay when their lease ends. It ensures the landlord will receive possession back at the end of the lease so it may be re-let to someone else. It is extremely important for you to educate yourself on the proper amount of days that is required to serve the tenant the Non Renewal Notice. Once you are aware of the appropriate amount of notice that must be given, this completely editable form may be created to meet the needs of the landlord as well as the requirements under the law.
Some states, such as California, have their own notices to use to end certain leases. Be sure to check out your local landlord forms page.
