NOTICE TO VACATE Definition & Legal Meaning

Definition & Citations:

A notice that is written by either the landlord or tenant giving a notice to leave the premises within a specified time frame, or to demand the same. The notice is typically given during the end of the lease period or due to an infringement of the lease agreement. In such cases, the tenant has 30 days to vacate the premises. On the other hand, if the tenant wishes to vacate, this notice empowers the landlord to advertise the rental place.
