Check Lease, State Law Before Sending Notices via Email
To save time and money, you may be tempted to send the owner notices by email, but you should check the notice section of your lease first. Many leases—particularly older ones—don't include email as a method that tenants and owners can use to send required notices. Instead, they require tenants and owners to send notice by, for example, certified or registered mail. If your lease doesn't permit you to send notices via email, you can try to get the owner to amend your lease to say that email notices are permitted.
