Hi, my name is Nic McGrue and I'm a lawyer at Polymath Legal located in Los Angeles, California. If you're a tenant and you plan to vacate your rental unit soon, you must first give your landlord advance notice. Before writing your letter, you must first determine how much advanced notice is required, generally 30 days advanced notice is what you must give your landlord in order to let them know your intent to vacate the premises. Be sure to check your local laws as well as your lease because this may be different. Now the contents of your letter should first have your name, the address of your rental unit and your landlord's name. In the letter you want to tell your landlord the date that you plan to vacate and you also want to ask your landlord if they have any specific instructions for you before you vacate. Additionally, you want to give your landlord a forwarding address so that your landlord can mail you your security deposit. At the end of your letter, make sure you sign the letter as well as leave contact information so that your landlord can contact you if they have any questions. Once again my name is Nic McGrue and this has been how to write a letter to your landlord in order to vacate your apartment.
