Although your goal as a Maryland property owner is to find reliable and long-term tenants, there might come a time when you have to pursue an eviction. Either due to nonpayment or extensive property damage, an eviction might be the best way forward. Here are the conditions in which you can evict a tenant with a 30-day notice.
The Non-Payment of Rent
You or your property manager can evict a tenant who hasn’t paid their rent on time. This is a useful tool when the rent due date has come and gone and you haven’t received communication from your tenant. The 30-day notice gives the tenant a chance to stop the eviction process by paying the amount owed before the sheriff arrives to enforce their eviction.
Holding Over at the End of a Lease
In most cases, you’ll want to keep a tenant for as long as possible. Thus, when the lease is up, you might choose to renew it or switch to a month-by-month rental agreement.
However, there are conditions in which you might want to ensure the tenant vacates the property at the conclusion of the lease. In that case, you must provide written notice 30 days prior to the lease’s end date.
Breach of the Lease
You also have cause to terminate a lease with 30 days’ notice if you discover a tenant has breached the terms of the lease. Even if the infraction occurred a while ago, you can issue the eviction notice as soon as you observe it.
Some breach of lease issues that are cause for eviction include subletting without permission, having too many people living in the unit, and having pets when a no-pet policy is in place.
