The Montana lease termination letter (1-month notice) is a written notification given by either the landlord or the tenant to terminate a month-to-month tenancy. It states that the tenancy will end in thirty days, and if the tenant fails to vacate after the notice period, they may be evicted. There is no obligation for either party to provide a reason for termination.
The only requirement is that the party terminating the lease must serve a written notice to the other party at least thirty days before the termination date. If the tenant does not vacate within thirty days of receiving the notice, the landlord can take legal action to evict them from the property.
Governing Law — § 70-24-441
Tenancy Length — Less than 1 year.
Reasons to Use a 30-Day Notice to Vacate
There are various grounds for requesting a tenant to vacate your property. These include:
- Property Sale or Renovation: If the landlord plans to sell the property or undertake significant renovations that require the property to be vacant, a 30-day notice to vacate may be used to inform tenants of the need to move out.
- Non-Renewal of Lease after Rental Term: Landlords cannot evict or force tenants to leave without valid reasons. Tenants have the right to stay until the lease term ends, provided they comply with all lease stipulations.
