Montana Landlords Association

If you have tenant(s) who are behind on their rent, you may want to send them the following notice: 

“You are in violation of non-payment.  You will have 5 days after receipt of this notice to apply to for rental assistance.  If I do not receive notice from the state rental assistance that you have applied, the rental agreement will be terminated and I will proceed with all legal avenues to evict you from the rental.”

The CDC Eviction Policy can be viewed in the Members Only area of the website in the sections for Mobile Home Forms and Residential Forms.

The MLA is a statewide non-profit trade association dedicated to the concept that knowledgeable, well-informed,  and law-abiding members make better Landlords.

Offering a variety of services to improve and support the residential Landlord / Tenant industry in Montana, providing our members with timely information about industry developments, educational opportunities, and membership benefits.
