It goes both way
how about the tenant giving me some predictabiltiy, if they decide they want to leave on oct, I’ll be screwed. so basically will leave about 1-2 month empty with low rent. To you maybe not much, but to small new landlord it’s a lot
I give them option to renew, below market, especially if comparing to newer remodel house. All i want is just like manch said if they decide to leave in winter time I would be screwed. And i give them plenty of time , and choice is not in my hand, it’s on their hand. They have every option to renew the same contract same term like when they first sign.
It’s both way tenant to landlord too right? I cannot help them manage their life. If i know my contract is ending soon, i would prepare to negotiate or find a backup plan.
