    Usually it’s just 30 days notice. We are giving ours May 1st and still need to write out our letter.

    Our landlord now requires 60 day notice. And since you are able to give it that far in advance I say do it . I think our written notice was jst like “this is offical notice that (our names) will be moving out of (our address) by this date,  when the lease is up. Our forwarding address is ((xxxxx). You may contact us with any questions at (our cell number). Thank you.

    Signed. “

    Even though you’re out of the lease, I would still take a look at the original agreement to see if there is a preference for when to put in notice.  Most of my past apartments required 60 days notice.

    @isabelle_86:  As a landlord, I say please as much notice as possible 🙂 Provided you have a good relationship and want to help, it really does make a difference to have that extra month. I actually build a 60 day notice period into my leases so I have time to find the next tenant. I’ve been lucky overall and only ever had a few *bad* tenants. God, they were bad.

    It’s usually in the terms of the lease. Sixty days in the norm.

    I’m not in Ontario but we gave our landlord notice when we dropped off our last check. We dropped off our checck on the 19th and told her were going to be leaving the 1st but were paid through until the 19th so we will also have a few days to clean and she’ll have time to come in make updates and try to find another tenant.
