Customer Question

this pertains to a 30 day notice to quit
JA: Where is the property located?
Customer: Maryland
JA: Has any paperwork been filed?

JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: My son is currently getting treatment to correct his issue. I have never had any other incidents occur that would jeoporadize my lease

I am sorry to hear about this situation. What exactly do you wish to know about this? For example, whether or not his mental disability gives him any extra rights in such a situation, etc?

This is not an answer, but an information request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. Thank you in advance.

Don't they have to give me a chance to correct the problem before terminating my lease?
Expert:  Ely replied 11 months ago.
That depends.
What exactly is the listed VIOLATION that they are using as the reason for termination of lease?
OR, are you on a month to month lease, and they are simply giving you a 30 day notice of termination without a reason?
