Vermont 30 Day Notice To Comply or Vacate

Last Updated: March 6, 2024 by Roberto Valenzuela

Vermont 30 Day Notice To Comply or Vacate is a letter which complies with state legal requirements to begin eviction against a tenant for a lease violation, such as failing to maintain the premises in a clean and sanitary manner. The tenant must take appropriate corrective action or else move out within thirty (30) calendar days of receiving notice.

When To Use a Vermont 30 Day Notice To Comply or Vacate

A Vermont 30 Day Notice To Comply or Vacate terminates a tenancy if one of the following conditions holds true:

  • If the tenant failed to maintain the rental unit in a clean and sanitary manner.
  • If the tenant allowed unauthorized occupants to reside in the rental unit
  • If the tenant parked in an unauthorized area on the premises
  • If the tenant violated any other provisions of the lease

Some types of Vermont 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 Vermont 30 Day Notice To Comply or Vacate

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

    1. Use the full name of the receiving party, and address of record, if known
    2. Specify the basis upon which the tenancy will terminate
    3. Specify the termination date of the lease or tenancy
    4. Fill in the full address of the rental premises
    5. Provide updated/current address and phone number information
    6. Print name and sign the notice
    7. 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 Vermont 30 Day Notice To Comply or Vacate

    Vermont landlords may deliver a Notice To Comply or Vacate in writing, using any of these methods:

    1. Hand delivery to the tenant, at the tenant’s last known address
    2. Mailing to the tenant’s last known address, by first-class or certified mail

    With mailed notice, Vermont law presumes the tenant has received it after three (3) calendar days, unless there is evidence to the contrary.

    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.
