The type of notice you send your tenant will influence the decision you receive if they take the matter to court. It’s critical to give the appropriate notice based on the circumstances so that you have a strong case if your tenant goes to court over the document or subsequent actions.

A Notice of Abandonment is sent to the tenant to explain that they have been absent from the property for a specific length of time without notifying you about it. It simply tells the tenant that you consider the property abandoned and unoccupied before the expiration of the lease. If a tenant does not inform you of their presence on the premises for an extended period, you may declare them to be “abandoned.” Additionally, you can seek to replace them if they don’t reappear promptly.
