With only 8 days of school left and less than 20 days until I graduate, I figure now is probably a good time to send in my 30 day notice to vacate to my landlord. Unfortunately, I had no idea what to write. However, thanks to the power of the Internet, I was able to find a really good example on Associated Content, Tips on Writing a Move Out Notice to Your Landlord. So, letter is now written and I’ll drop it off on Monday. In the meantime, I thought I’d share the notice in an attempt to a) help other people, and b) remember what I did for next time.
