30 Day Notice


The 30-day-notice is the standard notice, it is a written notice usually used to cancel or change a month-to-month lease, a notice period required by many states and local landlord-tenant laws and ordinances. It is a notice from a landlord to a tenant to vacate the premises within 30 days, or a notice from a tenant to a landlord informing the landlord of his or her intent to vacate the apartment unit within 30 days.

For example, if a landlord wants the tenant to vacate the apartment unit, the landlord needs to provide a 30-day notice to the tenant to vacate the property. Or if the tenant is ready to move out, the tenant will need to provide the landlord 30 days written notice before the tenant leaves the property.  

If a landlord is renting out a month-to-month and wishes to update something on the lease like wants to raise the rent, or make the property a no pets allowed, or wants to make any other changes, the landlord may provide a 30-days notice to change the lease at the end of the term, the landlord may provide a 30-day notice before the end of the lease term.

Under the law, it says that the landlord must receive the 30-day notice from the tenant if they are leaving the property unit or ending the tenancy. The landlord must receive the notice 1 full rental period (usually 30 days) before the tenant moves out. 

If there is any damage, unpaid rent or the apartment unit where the tenant is living was left untidy, the landlord may use the tenant’s security deposit to cover whatever the tenant has to pay. Most states require the landlord to provide a complete itemized list of all deductions.

The landlord may decide if he/she wants to terminate the lease of the tenant after the lease expires. There are several reasons why sometimes tenant receives a 30-day notice. If a tenant receives a 30-day notice, it doesn't mean eviction. It could mean that the landlord no longer wishes to continue the lease. The 30-day notice could also be served in circumstances wherein the landlord will renovate the property or sell it.  The landlord may also legally end the tenancy or terminate the lease if ever the tenant violates the lease or its terms. 

It is important to make sure that tenant read everything that lease states, must understand everything it says and complies with lease requirements.

There will be times that when a landlord or tenant issues arise, it could be a difficult situation and may be hard to determine what is the next step to do. It would be a good idea to consult with a lawyer to help fix the problem.
