55-307. Change in terms of lease — Notice. (1) In all leases of lands or tenements, or of any interest therein from month to month, the landlord may, upon giving notice in writing at least fifteen (15) days before the expiration of the month, change the terms of the lease to take effect at the expiration of the month. The notice, when served upon the tenant, shall of itself operate and be effectual to create and establish, as a part of the lease, the terms, rent and conditions specified in the notice if the tenant shall continue to hold the premises after the expiration of the month.
(2) A local governmental unit shall not enact, maintain, or enforce an ordinance or resolution that would have the effect of controlling the amount of rent charged for leasing private residential property. This provision does not impair the right of any local governmental unit to manage and control residential property in which the local governmental unit has a property interest.
(3) Notwithstanding subsection (1) of this section, in all leases of residential property, or of any interest therein, the landlord shall provide the tenant written notice of any increase in the amount of rent charged or of the landlord’s intention of nonrenewal of the lease at least thirty (30) days before:
(a) Such nonrenewal of the lease; or
(b) Such increase in the amount of rent charged is intended to take effect.
