How long does the Process take?

When Can a Tenant Withhold Rent?

If there are no applicable codes,  83.51(1)(b), requires a Landlord to maintain the roofs, windows, doors, floors, steps, porches, exterior walls, foundations, and all other structural components in good repairs.  If any of the violations are present, the Tenant can give their Landlord a 7 day notice as required by 83.60(1)(b) that they will be withholding rent.   More than 7 days before the next rental period, notice must be given.

How does a Landlord terminate a Month-to-Month Lease?

If a Tenant’s lease is month-to-month, a Landlord must give 15 days notice to terminate it   Accordingly, this is required by 83.57(3).  However, they must give 15 days prior to the beginning of the next rental period.   In other words, if they pay on the 1st  and the next month is August, they must give notice before July 15.
