An Oregon 10 Day Notice To Vacate is a letter which complies with state legal standards to terminate a week-to-week lease. The non-terminating party must receive notice at least ten (10) calendar days before the date of termination.

When To Use an Oregon 10 Day Notice To Vacate

An Oregon 10 Day Notice to Vacate terminates 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 Oregon 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 Oregon 10 Day Notice To Vacate

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

  1. Use the full name of the receiving parties, 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

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 Serve an Oregon 10 Day Notice To Vacate

Oregon 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
  3. Only if agreed by both parties: Delivery by first class mail AND posting to the property

To account for variable delivery times, mailed notice extends the notice period by three (3) calendar days.

note
In almost all cases, notice is legally served when it is received by the other party, NOT when it’s sent. Check specified date of termination carefully to ensure compliance with the legal requirements for a notice period.
