15 Day Notice Terminating Month to Month

Terminating Month-to-Month Tenancy

If you are the landlord, you may terminate a month-to-month tenancy by providing the tenant with a 15 Day Notice of Termination of Month-to-Month rental agreement (download now).  A 15 Day Notice to Terminate is appropriate if there is a written Month-to-Month rental agreement, or there is an oral rental agreement to pay rent.​​


Florida Eviction Law: 83.57

If no written lease agreement exists, then Florida eviction law provides that an oral agreement for lease of lands or tenements shall be deemed a 'tenancy at will', and a tenancy at will may be terminated by either the landlord or tenant providing notice of termination of tenancy. 


If the rent is due and payable monthly on the same date, and no written lease agreement exists, then the landlord may terminate a Month-to-Month tenancy by providing the tenant with a 15 Day Notice of Termination of Month-to-Month tenancy.
