A lease termination letter or notice to vacate is a written document telling your landlord that you intend to move out of a property and end your lease agreement. Most lease agreements require you to give this written notice. You’ll want to check your lease for specifics about the required information you must include.

How do you write a Lease termination letter?

Ending a lease requires renters to follow a procedure to make sure they give notice properly. A nonrenewal of lease letter generally offers the best way to notify your landlord or property manager that you’re ending the lease and moving out of your unit. Before you write the nonrenewal of lease letter, you’ll want to go over your lease agreement to see if you’ll face any penalties for moving out when you do. It’s also good practice to speak with your landlord directly. Be sure you carefully check the section of your lease agreement that describes renters giving notice about intent to move out. Doing so will help you confirm that any wording you plan to use and the notification process you’re following complies with the lease you signed.

Tips for writing your termination letter:

  • The letter must be written in a decent language and must be fully formal.
  • The use of abusive or harsh words should not be done anywhere in the letter body.
  • The letter must contain all the details about the reasons for the termination.
  • The letter must be ended with a proper thanksgiving and if possible, a suggestion for a new place to rent.
  • The exact date of the termination must be mentioned in the letter.
