Updated January 23, 2023

An Iowa termination lease letter is a reusable form letter which will satisfy Iowa State Law regarding terminating a tenancy at will lease if used properly. This form shall give the user the ability to quickly and clearly give the required thirty days’ notice one must give another party they have signed a month-to-month lease with for a rental property. In this way, the benefits of such a lease arrangement are not offset by the trouble caused when replacing either a tenant or a residence. Obviously, depending on the party leaving the remaining party will have to do one of these things. This can be the cause of quite a bit of hardship if handled improperly. By giving thirty days’ full notice such hardship may be controlled and even avoided altogether.

I.C.A. § 562A.34 – Requires thirty (30) days notice.

Iowa State Law seeks to help such individuals stave off potential disaster by making this amount of notice given mandatory. Thus, it is imperative to allow enough time for the delivery of this document when issuing it. In order to comply with state law, an Iowan must make sure the recipient has received this document thirty full days before the termination date named within it.
