A California Lease Termination Letter (30 Days) is a notice that a landlord of a residential premises is to use when asking a tenant to end the lease and leave the property. This form is to be used when the tenant has been residing at the property for less than a year. If the tenant has been residing at the property for more than a year, the landlord needs to provide 60 days’ notice and should use a 60-day termination letter instead.

In California, the landlord has the option of asking a tenant to vacate the premises with 30 days’ notice only if the tenant has been living there for less than a year. Termination of a lease less than one year does not require just cause, and a landlord may simply terminate a month-to-month agreement by providing 30 days’ notice.

Cal.Civ.Code § 1946.1 – A tenant under a month-to-month or at-will tenancy that has lived in the rental for less than one (1) year must be given at least 30 days’ notice.
