A New Mexico 30 Day Notice To Vacate is a letter that complies with state legal requirements to terminate a rental agreement, including a month-to-month or year-to-year lease. The non-terminating party must receive notice at least thirty (30) calendar days before the date of termination.

When To Use a New Mexico 30 Day Notice To Vacate

A New Mexico 30 Day Notice To Vacate terminates the following types of tenancy:

  • A rental agreement, including a month-to-month or year-to-year lease
  • An expired lease
  • A rental with no written lease where the tenant pays rent on a monthly basis

Some types of New Mexico lease termination notice may allow different reasons for termination, or different notice periods. This may also apply to an eviction notice issued because of a lease or legal violation.

How To Write a New Mexico 30 Day Notice To Vacate

To help ensure the legal compliance of a Notice To Vacate:

  1. Use the full name of the receiving party, and address of record, if known
  2. Specify the termination date of the lease or tenancy
  3. Fill in the full address of the rental premises
  4. Provide updated/current address and phone number information
  5. Print name and sign the notice
  6. Complete the certificate of service by indicating the date and method of notice delivery, along with printed name and signature

How To Serve a New Mexico 30 Day Notice To Vacate

New Mexico landlords and tenants may deliver a Notice To Vacate using any of these methods:

  1. Hand delivery to the other party
  2. Delivery by first class mail, with a certificate of mailing
  3. Posting at a conspicuous place on the premises, such as the entry door, AND hand delivering to the other party OR delivering by first class mail with a certificate of mailing
