State Specific Question About: MARYLAND (MD)

If tenant is on a month to month lease and has been for many years and I need to move back into property because of separation/divorce can I just give him 30 days notice? Any particular form or typed up? Thank-you, Tricia --173.30.xxx.xx

Generally 30 days from the beginning of the rental period. (So a notice today would actually give a tenant a 45 day notice, approximately. The tenant would likely appreciate the extra time.) Check your state law. It may vary. --70.105.xxx.xxx

Tricia, what everyone here has said. I just gave one of my tenants similar notice. (Different circumstances). I actually gave them two options of dates and had them choose, one of those options being at least 30 days from the next rental month. Give them some semblance of control and choice in the matter. Even though 30-day notice on a month to month is not the same as an eviction, when people receive such notice their interpretation is that they're being asked to leave which to them can still feel like rejection/eviction and cause some sort of reaction. This is the first time I have done such a notice and so took care to work with the tenants and overall it went pretty smooth. --172.58.xx.xxx

BTW, I'm not saying you should give them options as to their move out date and by law you don't need to. And I don't know the circumstances surrounding your tenant situation. I am saying that in my situation it seemed to soften the experience for them that they contacted me and said, "we choose the May 11th date," rather than me telling them that. I don't think the date they moved is any different than if I would have given it to them, but to them they were part of the process. Good luck! --172.58.xx.xxx

I also want to say, this (divorce) is not an easy thing to decide to do, but....I want to put in a plug for marriage counseling, family therapy, and just plain old stubbornness to try and stay together. I’m not asking the particulars of your situation, nor do I want you to feel that you have to defend your decision to a random person on the inter webs. Just that marriage is the toughest thing my husband and I have ever done, and the most worthwhile. We had plenty of times when we had thoughts of looking for attorneys. He happened to see in a couple of online sites that there are certain years where couples are very prone to split. We had very rough patches at each of those points, so I guess we were exactly on schedule. Fortunately, both of us are very stubborn, a couple of old mules we are, and we have finally learned to pull together. We love each other more than ever. And we are having a hellova lot of fun. And romance.

We still do some things that are triggers for the other, but we are both willing to step away (though he still specializes in putting on a really long pout if he doesn’t get his way. Still tries to help me with the work on my rentals, even though he knows that is destructive to our marriage, lol! )

Just want to give a little support for ‘stick to it, with work, it can get better’ plan. It can get much better. Or not. Again, I’m not asking for details, or a response. There is no magic crystal ball, nor do I have all the answer, or even most of them. Just want to send you some support.

Oh, and Drew’s advice to give your tenant plenty of notice, and reassurances is sound advice to my ears. --70.92.xxx.xxx

Depends on your state and local tenant rules, the court timing is what I would follow. --76.188.xxx.xx

I did that once. Bad idea. Leave tenant paying you. Use money to pay your expenses else where. Just a thought. --66.87.xxx.x

Plenty, there is much wisdom in what you said. Keeping rent flowing, especially if the numbers are good may be a good choice.

Tough situation, no matter what. I feel for ya, Tricia. --172.58.xxx.xxx
