Under the laws of all states in this country a written thirty (30) day notice of termination of a tenant's lease is customary where the tenant has materially breached his or her lease with the landlord. The problem for the landlord is that assuming you have a written lease for a term with your landlord, he or she is still contractually obligated to lease you the unit regardless of the HOA's new position on the subject assuming the lease you have is in effect.
