FAQ: What if my landlord decides not to renew my lease?

I have received notice that my landlord is not going to renew my lease. According to the terms of the lease, the landlord must provide a thirty (30) day notice that the lease will not be renewed. Does the landlord have to give me a reason for not renewing my lease?  

No, a private landlord is not required to give a reason for refusing to renew a lease unless the lease so requires. The landlord can refuse to renew a lease for any reason but cannot discriminate based on race, color, disability, religion, nationality, or because children are in the household. A private landlord merely has to give the tenant notice of non-renewal or other notice as required under the lease. If there is no written lease, the landlord has to give the tenant a sixty (60) day notice to terminate the tenancy.
