Sometimes you can do showings and line up replacements in advance. Sometimes the tenant sabotages the showings, is too messy for showings to be worthwhile, and so on.
My leases are written to require a tenant cooperate with showings during the last 30 days. But there is cooperative and there is cooperative, the only thing it does is get advance agreement to allow access.
My TX properties require a new lease 30 days before the expiration or they have to move when the lease expires. They get a reminder and new lease to sign 45 days before and if its not back on day 30, they get a reminder of what they need to do on move out to maximize their return of deposit.
My AZ lease used to go month to month. Now it expires the way the TX one does.
