If the circumstances justify it – you bet! If you happen to be so unlucky that you have a tenant committing several breaches of the lease, state law allows landlords to address each situation with a notice.
These are some of the more common notices landlords use:
- Non payment of rent
- Noncompliance notices
- Notice to terminate a month to month tenancy or a “not renewing lease” notice
- Access to enter a home/dwelling/apartment
- Abandonment notice
A common example of situations that warrant multiple notices is with tenants on a month to month or with a lease expiring. Landlords give (hopefully they do it in writing), the tenant notice of non-lease renewal, or perhaps the tenant gives notice. In that time-frame, things happen – maybe the tenant doesn’t pay last month’s rent thinking their security deposit will cover it (this happens most with DIY landlords), or something breaks inside the home requiring a landlord to access the dwelling, or there is a noise violation with late night parties, etc. In this case, the landlord can serve multiple notices to the tenant.
As always, make sure to follow the Arizona Landlord Tenant Laws (or whatever laws apply in your particular state), and if you don't know what the laws are - learn them or hire a professional property manager!
