Sample Letter to Terminate Lease in 30 Days

[The process of vacating a home can be stressful for both the tenant and the landlord. For a variety of reasons, the tenant may decide he or she no longer wishes to occupy the property they have been renting. They do not, however, have the freedom to simply pack up and leave without notifying the landlord at least 30 days in advance. The notice is required for the reasons stated in the chapter’s introduction. The tenant is required to notify the landlord of their intention to terminate the tenancy at the end of the notice period. It may also become necessary to settle any outstanding financial matters.]

Dear [tenant],

It is with great regret that I need to issue this letter for you to vacate the premises you have been occupying for the last three years on [date.] (Describe in your words).
