We have a tenant on our property that we want to non renew. Has anyone had to do this? 7 months 1 week ago #46951

We have a tenant on our property that we want to non renew at the end of their term. They don’t follow our company policies and constantly start altercations with staff, tenants and our vendors. They are just very disrespectful and ugly to everyone they are in contact with. We are in TX. Has anyone had to do this and what documentation do you have to provide to the tenant as back up? Or do you have to?

We just provide a very standard non renewal notice drafted by our legal department. We don't have to give a reason. We just say the owner wants the unit back.

Our state is pretty rigid about this and we must provide documentation if anyone ever disputes it - and many do. We always keep letters in files of any incident - even the smallest complaint - against the resident because we often have to justify our choice not to renew.

We just give them a standard no renewal with no explanation needed the same way they don’t have to give you one. If they do call and ask why, I say it’s just best to part ways.

Give them the 30 day non-renewal You don’t have to give reason, in most states.

Look in Blue Moon. TAA provides a notice of non-renewal.
You must give in the time frame that you give the renewals.

The nonrenewal notice Hass to be for the same period of time that you require their written notice for. That means I only have to require a 30 day written notice to them on the non-renewal. Many of you require a 60 day move out notice, and that’s the same amount of notice do you have to give them.

Not familiar with TX but in AZ no explanation is needed. Just as a resident had the ability to give notice without telling why they are moving, we don’t either. Only issue is that if they do file a suit for discrimination you have to prove in court a reasonable reason for the termination. If you’ve served them 10-days or violations you should have enough.

If they're that confrontational, an early NTV might be better.

Exactly. I coached my team to repeat the mantra, “we are requesting our apt. back” or words to this effect. It’s the response to “why are you asking me to leave?” In CA it’s not required to give a reason and I think it’s best to not give a reason. It makes it cleaner. The several times I used it, it was effective.
P.S. If challenged on FH basis, I ALWAYS had reasons to support. It was NEVER a personal decision.
