The New Jersey one (1) month lease termination letter, pursuant to Section 2A: 18-56, is required to be served to month-to-month and other “at-will” tenants. The notice provides the tenant with one full month to vacate the rental property. Likewise, the notice can also be used by the tenant to inform the landlord of their intention to move out within one month. If the tenant fails to move out within one month, the landlord can file an eviction action in Superior Court. The notice must be served to the tenant personally, left at the property with a resident at least fourteen (14) years old, or sent via certified mail.
