60 Day Eviction Notice Form

Last Updated: February 8, 2024 by Roberto Valenzuela

A 60 Day Eviction Notice Form terminates a tenancy by giving 60 days of advance notice before the tenant must move out. Only a handful of states use this type of notice, and only in a few specific circumstances, such as sale of the rental unit.

No states use this type of notice for a “curable” situation (i.e., one which the tenant could take certain actions to correct), so the tenant does not have an opportunity to continue the lease.

60 Day Eviction Notices by State

This chart indicates which states use 60-day eviction notices, the situations which apply to this type of notice, and whether the tenant can “cure” the situation to avoid termination:

State Terminates What Kind of Tenancy?
Can Cure?
California Month-to-month tenancy, IF the tenant has been resident on the premises for 1 year or more No
Delaware Any tenancy No
Florida Year-to-year No
Georgia Any at-will tenancy No
Illinois Year-to-year No
Minnesota Tenancy ending due to sale of the premises No
Missouri Year-to-year No
New Jersey Tenancy ending due to sale or personal use by owner of premises No
New York Tenancy where the tenant has been resident on the premises 1-2 years No
Oregon Month-to-month tenancy longer than 1 year No
Vermont Tenancy with a written lease and over 2 years’ duration, OR with no written lease of less than 2 years’ duration No

Common Uses of A 60 Day Eviction Notice

These are the most common uses for a 60 Day Eviction Notice, in states which use them:

  • Sale of the rental property
  • Personal use of the rental property by the owner
  • Termination of certain periodic tenancies

Sale of the Rental Property

Most states require disclosure to the tenant when the rental property is sold, and require termination of the existing tenancy (or at least giving the tenant the option to do so).

Personal Use By Owner

Some states allow early termination of a tenancy when the owner wishes to reclaim the property to live in themselves. For states that allow this, the tenant must receive proper advance notice of the change in use.

Termination of Tenancy

When a landlord wants to end a periodic tenancy, such as week-to-week or month-to-month, the landlord must give notice in order to terminate the rental obligations. This may also include rental situations without a written lease, and/or “at-will” tenancies.

With this type of notice, typically the tenant has done nothing wrong, and the landlord simply doesn’t want to renew the lease/rental agreement for whatever reason.
