An Alabama lease termination letter (30-day notice) is a formal written notification provided by either the tenant or the landlord to inform the other party about the decision to end a month-to-month rental agreement.
This document ensures legal compliance with state laws and allows both parties sufficient time for preparations before the tenancy ends. Moreover, the notice may prompt communication regarding the return of keys, arrangements for the final inspection of the property, and potential discussions about refunding the security deposit, if applicable.
Governing Law — Ala. Code § 35-9A-441(b).
Reasons to Use a 30-Day Notice to Vacate
Below are some of the main reasons for requesting a tenant to vacate your property:
- Non-Renewal of Lease After Rental Period Ends: Tenants can stay until the end of their rental period if they follow the rules. Overstaying the lease without renewal leads to a notice to vacate for monthly leases.
- Property Sale or Renovation: Landlords might need to vacate the property for sale, significant renovations, or personal use. This type of notice is a standard way to inform tenants.
