A Massachusetts lease termination letter (30-day notice) is a legal document that can be used by both landlords and tenants to terminate a month-to-month tenancy without a specific reason. The notice must be served at least thirty days or one rental period in advance, whichever is longer.
It is essential to adhere to any instructions within the lease agreement, and if none are provided, sending the notice via a provable method like certified mail with a signature is recommended. It is always best to part ways amicably. However, failure to move out within the notice period may result in legal eviction proceedings.
