Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to provide a warning notice?If your lease is fixed, you must always provide a warning notice for unpaid rent (Warning Notice of Rental Arrears). If your lease is fixed and the tenant has not been there for at least 6 months, you do not have to give a warning notice for a lease breach (Warning Notice of Lease Breach) or for anti-social behaviour (Warning Notice of Anti-Social Behaviour) but it is still recommended. If your lease is fixed and the tenant has been there for at least 6 months, you must provide a reasonable warning notice for lease breach or anti-social behaviour.

If the lease is a periodic lease and the tenancy at that time is less than 6 months, you should just provide the 28 days’ notice without any warning notice. If the lease is not a fixed lease and if the tenant has been a tenant for at least 6 months (security of tenure under Part 4 of the Residential Tenancies Act 2004), then you must provide a warning notice of 14 days to pay the rent or a reasonable period of time for any other breach.

These warning notices are included with your LawDepot Notice of Termination.
A landlord must provide a notice to its tenant of a rent review, which must include certain information about the basis for the rent increase and the rights of the tenant to appeal.

A landlord may only increase the rent every 12 months.

A landlord should also ensure that, if required, changes to the rent are registered with the Residential Tenancies Board.
What is a fixed-term lease?A fixed-term lease is one where the landlord and tenant have agreed that the lease ends on a certain date, or after a certain amount of time, which was decided when the lease was first made, and it has not yet expired.A periodic lease is one where the landlord and tenant have not decided on a certain end date. Instead, the lease renews on a periodic basis, such as monthly. Or a fixed term lease that has expired.A notice of rent review or rent increase provides the tenant with prior notice of an increase in the rent with the required information justifying that rent increase.

What is a Lease Notice?

A Lease Notice is a letter that landlords or property managers might send their tenants to:

  • Warn of a lease violation or late rent payment
  • Tell them their lease won’t be renewed
  • Increase the rent
  • Evict them

Legally, landlords must give tenants fair warning to resolve a problem or prepare for a change.

Use LawDepot’s Lease Notice template to send a written reminder of tenant obligations. Simply answer a set of questions to modify the template to your needs. Then, print or download it as a PDF.

A Lease Notice is also known as:

  • Eviction notice
  • Notice of termination of tenancy
  • Notice to quit
  • Notice to remedy
  • Notice of rent review
  • Rent increase notice
  • Warning notice of rental arrears
  • Warning notice of anti-social behaviour
  • Warning notice of lease breach

How much notice should landlords give?

Notice periods are set out in the Residential Tenancies Act 2004, and they vary depending on the reason and type of tenancy.

To increase rent, landlords should give at least 28 days’ notice before the new rent takes effect.

To terminate the tenancy, landlords should give more or less notice depending on the length of the lease:

Lease Duration Notice Period
< Six months 90 days
Six months > and < One year 152 days
One year < and > Seven years 180 days
Seven years < and > Eight years 196 days
Eight years + 224 days

Landlords typically give at least 28 days’ notice to remedy a lease breach, after which they may file a complaint with the Residential Tenancies Board.

LawDepot’s Lease Notice template gives guidelines for notice periods that may apply to your situation based on your answers.

How much notice should tenants give?

A tenant can terminate their lease before its end date as long as they give at least proper notice:

Lease Duration Notice Period
< Six months 28 days
> Six months and < One year 35 days
One year < and > Two years 42 days
Two years < and > Four years 56 days
Four years < and > Eight years 84 days
Eight years + 112 days

If a tenant breaks their lease early, their landlord may be able to claim some or all of the tenant’s deposit. 

How much can a landlord increase the rent?

Landlords cannot charge an amount that’s substantially higher than market rent. You can compare prices in your area to see what’s a fair amount.

In Rent Pressure Zones, increases cannot exceed 2% annually or the rate of inflation (whichever is lower).

What if a tenant refuses to pay a rent increase?

Tenants are responsible for paying their rent on time. If they fail to do so, the landlord may begin the process of terminating their tenancy.

However, if a tenant finds the rent increase to be unreasonable or in violation of the law, they may apply to the Residential Tenancies Board for dispute resolution. Alternately, they can try negotiating with the landlord to find a solution without the involvement of a third party. 

How to write a Lease Notice

1. Specify the notice type

State the reason you’re giving notice and elaborate with details.

For example, if sending a rent review notice, state the increased amount and when it takes effect. (If the property is in a rent pressure zone, LawDepot’s Lease Notice Template will remind you of the laws that apply.)

If sending a warning, select the grounds for the notice (e.g., breaching the lease, missing rent, or threatening behaviour) and how/when the tenant should remedy the problem.

If sending a notice of termination, state the day the tenancy will end.

2. Give details about the property and lease agreement

Include the property address and the original signing date of the Lease Agreement. This is important because the length of the tenancy affects the notice period required by law.

3. Include landlord and tenant details

Add the tenant’s name, as well as the name, address, and phone number of the landlord.

4. Create additional clauses as needed

LawDepot’s Lease Notice template gives you space to write a clause unique to your situation. For example, you might want to specify cleaning duties or the returning of security deposits. However, most Lease Notices won’t need an additional clause.
