Reasons for Evictions...
Landlords with properties in Maryland, most commonly evict their tenants for failure to pay rent. Other common reasons for eviction are for breach of lease terms or the tenant is holding over past the lease length. In order to evict a tenant, the landlord must first terminate the tenancy. To do this, the landlord must give the tenant 30 days notice of termination. If the tenant failed to pay rent, it is not necessary to notify the tenant that you are filing for eviction. (Note that in Baltimore City, special notice requirements apply. Special considerations are often in place for our Armed Forces)
The termination notice must state the reason for the termination and other relevant information. The available termination notices in Maryland are:
Notice to quit: This is a 30-day notice that is used when the tenant is holding the property past the end of the lease.
Breach of lease notice: For breach of the lease, the landlord must still give a 30-day notice of termination before filing for eviction.
