Letter from landlord's agent notice to vacate premises
This is a statutorily defined document regarding tenant's rights.
Landlord's agents are required to give notice in accordance with the terms of the agency agreement, which relates to contract law.
As the agent for the landlord, you are required to comply with statutes.
As a third party to the tenancy, you are obliged to act in accordance with the landlord's wishes.
However- If the notice to vacate, or any matters arising from the notice are in breach of a tenant's rights or in violation of statutes, (like giving insufficient period of notice, or failure to notify of rights if required by law), you are obliged to inform the landlord of the statutory requirements.
You may be in breach of both statutes and your agency agreement if you fail to do so.
Any action contrary to tenancy laws may be actionable. The notice to vacate may be deemed invalid in any dispute under those circumstances.
