I received a noise complaint while I was out of town, my sister was watching my dogs and received a couple complaints in one night. The next day I had a notice on my door saying they weren’t going to renew my lease. I’ve never had any problems or complaints about me. I called my landlord and she said it was due to the noise complaints and doesn’t want to talk about it. Is she allowed to do this?
ANSWER BY MARGARET CROSS-BELIVEAU:
A month to month lease can be cancelled by either the landlord or tenant for any reason, excluding discrimination or retaliation, by written notice.
