How To Write a Lease Termination Notice in Minnesota
To ensure the legal compliance of a lease termination notice:
- Use the full name of the receiving party, and address of record, if known
- Specify the termination date of the lease or tenancy
- Fill in the full address of the rental premises
- Provide updated/current address and phone number information
- Print name and sign the notice
- Complete the certificate of service by indicating the date and method of notice delivery, along with printed name and signature
It is easy to lose an otherwise justified legal action because of improper notice. Check carefully to ensure enough time after notice is delivered, not when it’s sent.
How To Calculate Expiration Date in Minnesota
The “clock” for a lease termination notice starts “ticking” the day after the notice gets delivered (served). For example, to give at least 30 days of notice and terminate a tenancy as of June 30th, delivery of the termination letter must be no later than May 31st.
In most jurisdictions, if the last day of a notice period is a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the period continues to run until the end of the next day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday.
Notice served in person after 5:00 p.m. Minnesota time extends the allowed notice period by one (1) calendar day.
How To Serve a Lease Termination Notice in Minnesota
Minnesota landlords and tenants may deliver a lease termination notice using any of these methods:
- Hand delivery to the other party
- Hand delivery to a person of suitable age who can accept the notice on behalf of the other party
- Delivery by registered or certified mail
Mailed notice extends the notice period by three (3) calendar days, to account for variable delivery times.
