The South Carolina thirty (30) day notice to terminate, as written in Section 27-40-770, must be served on a month-to-month tenant before the landlord can terminate the rental agreement. The notice provides the tenant with 30 days to fully vacate the rental property. If the tenant fails to move out within the 30 day time period, the landlord can file an eviction lawsuit in court. The eviction lawsuit is known in South Carolina as an “ejectment action,” and is filed in the local District Office.
Note: The landlord cannot terminate the lease agreement in discrimination or retaliation of the tenant.
