The Minnesota Lease Termination Letter Form | 30-Day Notice fulfills a non-negotiable requisite of by providing a useable form letter. When a Landlord or Tenant wishes to terminate an At-Will or Month-to-Month lease, whichever party is leaving must issue a notice so that it is received by the opposite party by a period of time that is equivalent or greater than an interval between rent payments. This period may not be longer than three months. For example, if the time period between rent payments is six months, the Tenant or Landlord may simply issue a three-month notice. Thus, whichever the lesser of rent intervals or three months is the notice required to be given.
Such a requirement acts as a precaution to protect the recipient of such a notice from hardships that may be devastating otherwise. When utilizing this form letter as a measure to be compliant with Minnesota Law, make sure to consult the lease itself as any agreement in terms of delivery must be obeyed (unless it is unlawful). This will ensure a smooth transition for all parties involved.
Minimum Termination Period – 30 days
