When Can a Landlord Issue a Tenant a Non-Compliance Letter?

Landlord can issue non-compliance letters to tenants who breach their rental agreements. They can also issue such letters when tenants fail to fulfill their duties under the law.

If tenants fail to pay rent when due, then the landlord can issue a non-compliance letter. The tenants can also receive a non-compliance letter when they knowingly allow a third party who is not on the lease to stay in the unit. Additionally, tenants who park their vehicles in unauthorized parking spaces can receive a non-compliance notice.

Landlords have the right to issue non-compliance letters to tenants who materially breach their obligations under the Uniform Owner-Resident Relations Act. This includes willfully causing damage to the property.

In addition, landlords may issue non-compliance letters when they find out that their tenants have provided false or misleading information on their rental applications. Examples include falsifying their incomes or Social Security numbers.

The landlord may issue a non-compliance letter for the immediate termination of the rental agreement if the tenant's breach is material and incurable. Examples of such breaches include assault or unlawful manufacturing of controlled substance.

Landlords can issue non-compliance letters to tenants who have pets when the rental agreements state that pets are not allowed on the rental property.
