Hi there, I am a property manager and last month I emailed a tenant to say the owner will allow them to continue on a periodic lease after expiry on 16/11/15. The owner has now decided he would like to take back possession of the property when the current lease expires so we issued the tenants 30 days written notice on the 28th Oct which meant their new lease end date would be 27/11/15 to honour the 30 days. The tenants have sought advice and believe the email I sent them counts as an official (periodic) lease starting from the 16/11 and the owner will now need to provide 60 days written notice from this date to end the agreement. I do not agree with this because their current fixed lease has not yet lapsed which means a periodic lease cannot begin yet. I also called the Dept of Commerce who advised there was 'intent ' to offer a periodic lease but thats all. Can anyone please provide some advice on this or view? Thanks, Daniel.
