An Ohio 7 Day Notice To Vacate is a letter which complies with state legal requirements to terminate a week-to-week lease. The non-terminating party must receive notice at least seven (7) calendar days before the date of termination.
When To Use an Ohio 7 Day Notice To Vacate
An Ohio 7 Day Notice To Vacate ends a week-to-week lease, or a rental situation with no written lease where the tenant pays rent weekly. Either the landlord or the tenant may deliver this notice, as appropriate.
Some types of Ohio 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 an Ohio 7 Day Notice To Vacate

- Fill in the full address of the rental premises
