The notice should be in writing. The notice should be addressed to the landlord by name. If more than one, all names should be listed. The notice should state: I give you this notice that I am ending my month to month lease for your property at (address) on (last day of next month). Please tell me where to return the keys.
The notice can be handed to the landlord or mailed by certified mail to the address where rent is paid, with a return receipt from the post office to prove delivery. If mailed, the notice must be sent to allow time for it to be delivered before the start of the next rent month.
