The New Jersey one (1) month lease termination letter is required to be served to month-to-month and other “at-will” tenants before the landlord terminates the rental agreement. The notice provides the tenant with one full month to vacate the rental property. This document can also be used by the tenant to give the landlord one month notice of their intention to move out. If the tenant fails to move out within one month, the landlord can file an eviction action in the Superior Court of the county in which the residence is located. The notice must be served to the tenant personally, left at the property with a resident at least fourteen (14) years old, or sent by first class mail with a return receipt.
