A written notice is the best way for parties to communicate regarding their intention of vacating or terminating the tenancy and as important is the duration of the notice given. If the Tenant pays rent on a daily/weekly basis a 28 day notice is required. If the Tenant pays rent on a monthly basis or there is a lease for a fixed term, a 60 day notice is required. In each case, the termination date must be at the end of the weekly or monthly rental period or it cannot be earlier than the last day as specified in the lease.
Again, parties may come to a terms of agreement that vary from what is outlined in the above, however, it is always recommended to have a written agreement.
