I am renting an apartment on a month to month rental

Customer Question

I am renting an apartment on a month to month rental agreement .I have owned the property for under a year and would like to rent it to a daughter that's having a financial crisis. Can I give notice to the tenant for this reason? Is this legal??

Yes, it is. As long as you give the proper notice to terminate the month to month lease agreement, the tenant would need to vacate. There is nothing wrong with doing this and is allowed, as long as you are not discriminating against the tenant. When a tenant rents month to month, they are afforded the flexibility to leave rather quickly, upon giving notice but it works the same way, as the landlord can end the lease as well. You really have no obligation to tell them why either and can advise them, in writing, that you are going to end the month to month lease, give them the proper notice and time to vacate and set up a move out inspection prior to, if they desire.
