How to Calculate Expiration Date in Indiana
A lease termination letter takes effect the day after it is served. Lease termination letters must be delivered at least the legally required number of calendar days in advance of the termination date. For example, with a month-to-month lease, to terminate the tenancy on June 30th, the letter must be served by either party before June 1st.
If the last day of the notice period falls on a weekend or legal holiday, then the notice period will not officially expire until the end of the following judicial day (a day when the courthouse is open).
