Fighting to Protect The Rights Of Landlords
A: Yes. Current state law allows a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking or elder abuser to terminate a fixed term tenancy. Moreover, a new state law now adds renters who were victims of human trafficking to terminate their fixed term tenancy. The Tenant, however, must provide you with a copy of a restraining order, police report, or a statement from a qualified third party who bases their statement on information received while acting in a professional capacity as domestic violence counselors, sexual assault counselors, or human trafficking caseworkers.
Q3. How much notice must I give my tenants if I want to raise their rent?
A: Assuming you are not in a rent controlled, you may raise the rent on a month to month tenancy with 30 days notice (if increase less than 10%) or 60 days (if increase greater than 10%).
Q4. Do I have to give my tenants a notice to vacate before their lease term expires?
