Notices to Vacate and Ending a Lease
Notices to Vacate
What is a notice to vacate
A notice to vacate is a letter to end a lease. It can be written by you or by your landlord. There has
to be a written notice to vacate to end any periodic lease, including oral month-to-month leases.
Some leases say you have to give notice even if you plan to move on the lease ending date. The
type of notice required to end a lease depends on the type of lease and the length of the rent
Ending a Month to Month or Other Periodic Lease
With a periodic lease, the rent period begins the day the rent is due and lasts until the rent is due
again. If your rent is due on the first of each month, your rent period runs from the first of the
month to the end of the month. Most periodic leases have a monthly rent period.
To end a periodic lease, like a month-to-month lease, either you or your landlord must give proper
written notice at least one full rent period before the move-out date. So, the notice must be
delivered and received by 11:59 p.m. of the day before the next month’s rent is due if you want to
end your lease at the end of next month.
For example: let’s say you are renting month-to-month with rent due
on the first of the month. You want to move out at the end of
April. You have to give your landlord written notice that you want to
move before the end of March. Your landlord has to get your written
notice to vacate by 11:59 p.m., on March 31st.
In order to be proper written notice, your letter needs to say you are
ending the month-to-month lease and the date at the end of the
month you will move out.
So, for example, your letter would say, “I am ending our month-to-month lease at the end of April. I
will vacate and move out of the rental property on or before April 30th.”
If you want to move but you don’t give a proper notice to vacate, your landlord may hold you
responsible for an extra month of rent, or longer, even if you move out before the next month
