Landlords must provide tenants with a document called “Notice of Landlord,” which contains contact information for the landlord or someone who is acting on the landlord’s behalf (such as a property manager). The notice must be written, dated, and signed. It must include the landlord’s name, mailing address, and physical location. If the landlord has a property manager, then the property manager’s name, mailing address, and physical location may be provided instead of the landlord’s.
The Notice of Landlord must be served on a tenant within 7 days of the tenant moving into the rental unit. For example, if a tenant moves in on October 1, then the landlord must provide the Notice of Landlord to the tenant on or before October 8.
Alternatively, instead of giving a notice to each tenant, a landlord can post the Notice of Landlord in a common area of the rental property such as the lobby or mailing room.
If the landlord’s contact information changes, the landlord must serve or post a new Notice of Landlord.
If the rental property is sold, the new landlord must serve or post a new Notice of Landlord.
