The Mississippi Lease Termination Letter Form | 30-Day Notice is a valuable tool any Landlord and Tenant who regularly enters At-Will Tenancies in the State of Mississippi should keep handy and at his/her disposal. This document form serves the purpose of enabling an individual terminating an At-Will Tenancy in remaining compliant with Mississippi Code Title 89 Chapter 8-19 by providing the framework for a termination letter. In many cases, this may also help in keeping the act of terminating on an official level rather than a personal level. This can be very important as it is generally recommended to end such agreements on a positive note.
It is worth mentioning that while this form letter was devised to give Month-to-Month the required 30 days’ notice it will also satisfy the state requirements for terminating a Week-to-Week Tenancies. In the State of Mississippi, a Week-to-Week Tenancy may be terminated with only one week’s notice prior to the termination date. Obviously giving more than a week’s notice in such an arrangement would be considered to be a favorable action for the remaining party. By giving one month’s notice the party terminating the agreement will aid the party remaining to find a replacement while potentially avoiding extraneous hardships. Keep in mind the 30 Days’ Notice requirement will only be fulfilled if the recipient has this letter in their hand a full thirty days before the desired termination date.
