The Massachusetts 30-day notice to quit is a document that both landlords and tenants may use to state their intention of terminating a month-to-month tenancy. Neither party is required to justify their reason for termination as month-to-month tenancies may be terminated without cause. The party seeking to terminate must serve the notice to the other at least thirty (30) days or one (1) rental period in advance, whichever is longer. If the tenant doesn’t vacate within the designated notice period, the landlord may seek legal restitution through an eviction lawsuit.
