Effective March 13, 2017, Section 29-27 (w) of the Montgomery County Code requires all licensed owners to add the lease summary to each new lease. The summary sets out the main terms of the tenancy agreement, aggregates tenants` rights and rights, and provides information on services provided to tenants in the Montgomery Department of Housing and Community Affairs (DHCA). The Montgomery County Department of Housing Affairs website contains information on the eviction process, tenants working with landlords, changes in housing law enforcement and county resources. However, if the tenant violates the tenancy agreement, 60 days` notice is not required and you can terminate the lease with 30 days` notice.

In other words, sixty days before the lease expires, you must either give the tenant a 60-day non-renewal period or offer a two-year lease. If you opt for a two-year lease, the tenant can refuse your two-year rental offer and stay in the property as a monthly tenant. If this happens and you wish to keep the tenant on a monthly basis, it would be advisable to receive the refusal of your two-year rental offer in writing, signed by the tenant.

CONSIDERING, the landlord wishes to rent the premises to the tenants on conditions such as those contained in it; and tenants now have more opportunities to terminate their leases prematurely if circumstances beyond their control require them to relocate.
