A. Either party can terminate a month-to-month tenancy by giving the other party written notice. The landlord must give the tenant 45 days notice. The tenant must give the landlord 28 days notice.
If the tenant fails to pay the rent, the landlord can serve a 5-day notice on the tenant (5 business days). If the rent is not paid by the end of the notice period the landlord can start summary possession proceedings. Other breaches of the rental agreement involve a 10-day notice period, at the end of which time the landlord can either terminate the rental contract and bring summary proceedings for possession or remedy the tenant's breach and bill the tenant for the costs.
If the landlord breaches the agreement, the tenant can give 1 week's notice that the tenancy will be terminated if the landlord does not cure the breach by the end of the notice period.
A. The landlord is allowed to charge up to one month's rent as a security deposit, plus an additional one month's rent as a pet deposit if the tenant has a pet. This pet deposit allowance is not allowed if the animal is an assistance animal for a tenant with a disability. The landlord is not allowed to demand any other amounts from the tenant at the beginning of the rental agreement other than the security deposit amount.
A. When a tenant terminates the rental agreement, the landlord has 14 days after the termination date to return the security deposit and any advance rent paid by the tenant, minus any amounts for damages, unpaid rent and other costs that the landlord has incurred and is allowed to deduct.
