Tennessee 60 Day Notice To Vacate is a letter which complies with state legal requirements to deliver notice of non-renewal for rentals with a term of one (1) year or more, located in Davidson County. The non-terminating party must receive notice at least sixty (60) calendar days before the date of termination.

When To Use a Tennessee 60 Day Notice To Vacate

A Tennessee 60 Day Notice to Vacate serves as a notice of non-renewal of the lease for rentals with a term of one (1) year or longer, located in the city of Nashville or Davidson County. Either the landlord or the tenant may provide this notice as appropriate.

Some types of Tennessee 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 Tennessee 60 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

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 a Tennessee 60 Day Notice To Vacate

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

  1. Hand delivery to the other party
  2. Hand delivery to a person of suitable age on the property who can accept the notice on behalf of the other party, PLUS delivery by mail
  3. Delivery by electronic form (e.g., email or online tenant portal), only if the parties have agreed to this form of notice in writing

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.
