'Good Cause' Required to Terminate Lease
A household in Minnesota lived in a tax credit unit under a one-year lease that stated the lease could be terminated upon 60 days' written notice. Before the end of the lease term, the management company sent a notice saying it would not renew the lease, but did not provide any explanation why. When the household didn't move out when the lease expired, the management company evicted it. The household appealed its eviction, claiming the notice was invalid because it didn't specify “good cause” for nonrenewal.
