A notice to vacate is given if your landlord needs you out of the rental property or if you're moving out of the property by your own free will and need to let your landlord know.
It's a written statement that verifies the rental property will not have a tenant living in it by a specific date.
A notice to vacate can be written by either a landlord or a tenant.
When written by a landlord, a notice to vacate is commonly known as an "eviction notice," which tells the tenant they must move out of the rental property. Here are things you'll see:

When written by a tenant, a notice to vacate lets the landlord know the tenant is moving out. Here are things you'll include:
As a tenant, it's nice to let your landlord know if you're moving out due to finding a new job, moving closer to family or other life circumstances, or if you're moving out due to uncomfortable living conditions like a disrespectful or noisy neighbor, or if rent is too expensive. This will help them fix problems for future tenants.
