FAQ: How much notice must a landlord give the current tenants to end the lease?

I have decided to remodel my apartments and rent to a higher income market. How much notice to vacate must I give the current tenants?  

The length of the termination notice depends on whether or not you have a lease with the tenants. If you do have a lease, its provisions for termination would apply. For example, a thirty (30) day notice to vacate would be appropriate only if the lease specifically provided for a thirty (30) day termination notice. If there is not a termination provision in the lease, you must wait until the lease expires. If there is no lease, the landlord must give the tenant-at-will a sixty (60) day termination notice.
