The Texas month to month lease termination letter, pursuant to Section 91.001, is the notice that must be served to a tenant (on a month-to-month) lease in order for the landlord to be able to terminate the lease agreement. Although no reason is needed for the termination, the landlord cannot terminate the agreement in discrimination (or retaliation) of the tenant. The notice provides the tenant with 30 days to vacate the rental unit. If the tenant does not move out within the 30 day period, the landlord can then sue them for possession of the property (by filing an eviction suit in a Justice of the Peace Court).
Note: This notice can also be used by a tenant to inform their landlord of their intention to terminate the rental agreement and move out of the unit.
How to Write
Step 1 – Put the current date (that you are filling out the notice on) in the “Notice Date” field, and then write the address of the rental unit in the “Address” input field.
Step 2 – Write the name(s) of the tenant(s) in the “To” field.
Step 3 – Fill in the start date of the lease agreement.
Note: If you are the tenant, enter a return address for the security deposit.
Step 4 – Complete the “Proof of Service” section once the notice has been served. Select the service method that was used (by checking off the appropriate box), and then enter the date/time of service.
Step 5 – At the bottom of the section, sign/print and then date your name.
