Is it a rental or do you own the unit?

I’ve always just made it plain and direct:  “To whom it may concern, This letter is to serve ast 30 days notification that His Barista and Fiance will be vacating their apartment on Feb XX, 2010.”  I would keep it simple, you certainly dont need to give any explanation.  Also I lived in one place where I just went to the complex’s office and verbally informed them, then I signed some papers with them agreeing to move out on the date, and I was all set.  

Your rental agreement and contract might have guidelines too.

 

good luck!

Here’s what I wrote when I moved out of my old apartment and had to give them a notice:

 

To whom it may concern,

This is to inform you that I will be moving out of my apartment, [APARTMENT NUMBER], on [DATE]. My new address will be: [NEW ADDRESS]

Sincerely,

[MY NAME]

Current Tenant, Apt # [APT NUMBER]

 

Hope that helps! 🙂

Just write up that you will be vacating the apartment on ____ date.  Include a forwarding adress so that your landlord will know where to send your deposit if you had one and where to forward any mail you recieve.

I tried to keep mine as brief as possible.  I included:

  • the date I would be completely out of the apartment
  • how I would arrange to get all keys back to the landlord
  • arrangements for last month’s rent payment (if this was paid upfront or is included with the letter, etc)
  • arrangements for security deposit (how it will be determined what I got back, scheduling a walk through with landlord)

Be as specific as possible with all numbers, dates, money.  Make sure you either hand deliver the letter or send it certified mail.

I like @azulas….direct and simple!

also, make sure you check your contract…you arn’t breaking the lease early I’m assuming?

Oh yeah, like the others said, include forwarding address and phone number.

Post office should be in charge of forwarding your mail, as long as you fill out the proper forms.  I wouldn’t rely on a landlord to get any mail to me in a timely manner, just not a priority for them….but that’s just me 🙂

I like azula’s letter.  Make sure that you file forwarding paperwork with the post office.  They have it all online now so you don’t have to even go to the post office.  They will forward mail for a year, so make sure to give everyone your new address.

Both of our apartments had a form that we filled out that acted as our 60 days notice. You can always call and find out if your complex has something like that.
