The Maryland one (1) month notice to quit is an eviction letter designated for the termination of month-to-month rental agreements. The landlord shall deliver the written notice to the tenant one (1) month before the intended expiration of their tenancy. If the notice is to be sent by mail, it should be deposited at least three (3) days before the beginning of the month to ensure it arrives on time. The tenant will have until the final date of the month to vacate the property. If they continue to inhabit the dwelling past the end of the notice period, the landlord can start the eviction process by filing a Tenant Holding Over action with the district court.
A tenant may use this notice to terminate their tenancy. The notice period given to the landlord should be outlined in the termination provisions of the lease. If there is no written lease, the tenant will generally be required to provide the landlord with a notice period equal to the tenancy period (e.g., one month).
Note: Different rules may apply in Baltimore City and Montgomery County.
