30-day notice

Definition

A common notice period required by many state and local landlord-tenant laws and ordinances.

A notice from a landlord to a tenant to vacate the premises within 30 days; a notice from a landlord to a tenant informing the tenant of a change in the terms of the tenancy, e.g. an increase in rent; or a notice from a tenant to a landlord informing the landlord of his or her intent to vacate the premises within 30 days.

If a tenant fails to vacate the premises within 30 days of service of landlord's notice to vacate, the landlord may bring an unlawful detainer or eviction suit, and a court may order the tenant to vacate.
