Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
Do I have to state a reason if I have a fixed period one year lease.
No, there is no law that states that a landlord has to give a reason for not renewing a lease. So you can simply refuse to state a reason or state something gen***** *****ke you have another tenant interested if you wanted to say anything.
But you don't have to say anything if you don't want to.
As an aside, in addition to being an attorney, I have also been a landlord for over 26 years...
