North Dakota 30 Day Notice to Quit | Tenancy at Will

The North Dakota thirty (30) day notice to quit, in accordance with 47-16-07, is to be served on a month-to-month tenant to notify them of the landlord’s intention to terminate the rental/lease agreement. The notice cannot be served by the landlord (it must be served by a third party such as a private process server, or the sheriff). The notice provides the tenant with thirty (30) days to vacate the rental property. If the tenant does not vacate the property by the end of the 30th day of the notice period, the landlord can file an eviction action in the district court of the rental property’s county location.


How to Write

Step 1 – Put the notice date (DD/MM/YYYY) and street address of the rental unit (street, unit number, city, county, state, ZIP) in the input fields at the top of the form. In the “To” field enter the full name of the tenant.

Step 2 – Check the first box off, and then enter the start date of the lease agreement.

Note: If you’re the tenant, check the second box off and then enter a mailing address for your security deposit.

Step 3 – Complete the “Proof of Service” section after the notice has been served on the tenant. Select the service method, enter the date/time of service, and then print/sign your name at the bottom of the section.

Note: An official affidavit of service will also be required. The affidavit must be filled out/signed by the third party who served the notice (not the landlord). If you have any questions regarding the service of the lease termination notice, contact the clerk of the district court in the county of your rental property.
