The Connecticut month-to-month Notice to Quit is used by a landlord that wishes to terminate a tenancy (at will) by granting the number of days provided in the lease/rental agreement. In the State of Connecticut, the typical minimum period of notice is three (3) days. The Notice to Quit cannot be served less than ten (10) days from when the rent was initially due (e.g. if the rent was due on June 3rd, the Notice would not be served until June 13th). Notices to Quit must be served by a State Marshal. The fee for this service ranges from $35 to $45.
