A Notice to Vacate form is a notice that you will need to create for your tenants, if you need them to vacate the premises due to a breach in their tenancy.
Please note the notice to vacate the premises is set up for landlords to issue to tenants – not the other way around. It is used by a landlord to give a tenants notice that they will have to vacate the premises permanently.
It’s never fun having to issue a Notice to Vacate however we’ve at least made it easier for you – the ability to create a Notice to Vacate form via our site should take you mere minutes to complete.
What Is In A Notice to Vacate form?
Our system will ask you the required details needed to create a notice to vacate form.
First it asks you for the landlords information – name and address. Then it will ask you for the tenants name and address as well.
Next it asks you to enter the reason for this Notice to Vacate being written. This is where you will write exactly what the tenant did to breach their original lease and why they are being vacated. As there can be many reasons for this we have left this wide open – rather than a bullet list or a multiple choice section you simply enter in what the reason is.
Then you state what date they must vacate the premises by. We also cite the original lease agreement within the notice as you need to clarify that you are referring to that. We will prompt you for the date of the initial lease agreement.
That’s it – your Notice to Vacate is now created and you can print it immediately and issue it to the tenant.
Note that we also add the ability to add witnesses and proof of services to the document. For a Notice to Vacate we highly recommend proof of service such as by mail or by delivery. That’s highly important as you want to make sure the tenant received it. Of course you can also do that via the mailing provider if you are mailing it as opposed to delivering it personally.
The Notice to Vacate that you create will state that they have breached the Lease Agreement signed on the date you listed. They are now requested to quit and vacate the premises by the date stated. It will state the reason as to why they are being issued with a notice to vacate, as well as inform them that if they fail to vacate the premises or fail to cure the breach, you will take legal action to evict them.
Is This the Same as a Notice Of Intent To Vacate?
A notice of intent to vacate the premises is something that is usually issued by the tenant. This is a notice informing the landlord that they intend to vacate the premises on a specific date. This is not the same as the Notice to Vacate we have.
How Many Days Notice Do I Have To Give to Vacate the Premises?
We get a lot of people searching and finding our site for terms such as California 30 day notice to vacate and Florida 15 Day Notice to Vacate. We know a lot of people are looking for State specific forms in regard to the amount of days required by your state.
To make it simple we leave the days for a Notice to Vacate up to you. Rather than creating different forms for each state, you are the one that simply has to put in how many days notice they are given. That way whether you are looking for a 15 day notice to vacate in Florida or a 3 day notice to vacate in Texas, this form will apply to you.
We did this as initially we did it separately by state but we had people asking us for a “California 60 day notice to vacate” when we only offered 30 days so we have made the change to make it completely customizable by you, the landlord. That way you can create the document via our system and not have to hop into Microsoft Word or something to edit it.
Please note that you are responsible for how many days notice to vacate a tenant is given, based on your own state regulations. Be sure to read up on it too. For example in California a 30 day notice is fine if a tenant has been renting the property on a month to month basis, or for less than 12 months. However if the tenant has been there over 12 months? Then according to the California courts, you need to issue a 60 day notice.
So just be sure to check that. Also check local city rules and regulations. For example if you are in a rent controlled city, you can’t just cancel a month to month rental for any old reason. So be sure to be aware of all of that. I mean there is also a 90 day notice for California although that’s only used if it is subsidized housing.
Our Notice to Vacate will allow you to create any sort of Notice you wish with any requirements however be sure to be aware as to what is required within your state and city.
