Customer Question
Received letter from law...

Received letter from law office stating that I had 30-days to vacate the property I am renting with no explanation or signature on letter. Am on month to month lease. Is the letter correct or does it need to be signed by landlord?

Lawyer's Assistant: What's the purpose of the letter? To whom is it being written?

It is a 30 day termination notice. It is written to me and all occupants of my address.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Not to my knowledge, someone showed up at the address last night and handed it to my other roommate. No name was given as to who was delivering the letter.

What state are you located in? Also, is the law firm representing the landlord? Have you contacted the landlord and ask what is the reason they want you out?

Arizona is the state. I don't know if the firm is representing the landlord. Have not talked to the landlord as of yet.

Are you still there?
Lawyer: LandlordTenantAnswer, Attorney replied 11 months ago

Thank you for the reply. From a legal standpoint, the landlord could terminate the tenancy with a 30 day written notice, without any reason for it. Now, you do want to reach out and speak with the landlord and see if they can share with you a basis for this and if anything can be worked out and also respond to the law firm and see and make sure they are representing the landlord. It does not necessarily have to be signed by the landlord but it needs to be known that the landlord wants you to vacate and it is from them

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
