The North Dakota lease termination letter (1-month notice) is a formal notification used to inform a tenant that their month-to-month rental arrangement will end in 30 days. It’s applicable to both landlords and tenants engaged in a monthly, at-will lease.
If a tenant fails to vacate after receiving this notice, the landlord has the right to initiate legal action for repossession. In month-to-month agreements, as long as the required one-month notice is given, landlords are not obligated to explain the reason for termination.
Governing Law — NDCC, 47-16-15
Tenancy Length — Less than 1 year.
Reasons to Use a 30-Day Notice to Vacate
There are several reasons to ask a tenant to evict your property. Some of them include:
- Lease Non-Renewal Post-Rental Term: Under North Dakota eviction laws, landlords cannot evict or compel tenants to leave without valid reasons. Tenants are entitled to remain until the lease term concludes, provided they adhere to all lease stipulations.
- Preparing for Long-Term Tenants: Landlords may use a 30-day notice to end short-term rental agreements in preparation for securing long-term tenants.
