I gave my tenant 30 day instead of 60 day notice on a month to month lease

Asked about 1 year ago - Glendale, CA

I gave my tenant 30 day notice instead of 60 day notice. I found out I had to give a 60 day notice after I gave them the 30 day notice because they have stayed there for more than a year, do I give them a 60 day notice again or just add another 30 days. He is already informing me that he is not going to move out and for me to take him to court.

    Answered . Your prior notice was ineffective. You need to reserve a proper 60 day notice. If you anticipate that this will be a problem tenant, it might be advisable for you to retain counsel from the start so you do not make any further missteps.

    Answered . You cannot extend the length of the original notice. You must start over with a new 60 day notice.
