Step 11 -  Give notice to your landlord

Giving Notice to Your Landlord

If you're currently renting, it's important to give notice to your landlord that you'll be moving out. Check your state’s rental law or Landlord-Tenant Handbook:

It will also be listed in your lease as to the timeframe you must give notice to your Landlord.  Most often, if you have a month-to-month lease, you only need to provide 30 days' notice. If you have a yearly lease, you'll need to give 60 days' notice before your lease term ends if you're planning to move out. For example, if your lease ends on October 1, you should inform the landlord by August 1 whether you'll be renewing your lease or moving.

But what if you have a yearly lease that doesn't end for a few months? In that case, you have a few options:

  1. We can explore the possibility of pushing the closing date to the end of your lease term. If this interests you, please let us know.
  2. You can choose to keep both places for the remainder of your lease, giving you plenty of time to move leisurely from your rental apartment to your new home. However, this does mean paying the monthly rental payment plus your mortgage payment for the remainder of your lease.
