Thank you. Sincerely, Terry Tenant Sandy Singer Joe James Note: 1. You can only give a 30-day notice if you have a month to month rental agreement. 2. If you have a lease, you can not give a 30-day notice to move out. However, read your lease carefully. Many automatically turn into a month to month agreement when they expire and do require a 30-day notification that you intend to move out at the end of the original lease period. 3. KEEP A COPY OF YOUR LETTER!
