New Mexico 30 Day Lease Termination Letter | Month-to-Month Tenancy
The New Mexico thirty (30) day lease termination letter, pursuant to Section-47-8-37, may be used to inform a month-to-month tenant of the landlord’s intention to terminate the rental agreement. Under New Mexico law, the landlord can cancel the rental/lease agreement of an “at-will” (as well as standard) tenancy, but the tenant must receive a minimum of thirty (30) days notice prior to the date of termination. If the tenant fails to move out by the end of the 30th day of the notice period, the landlord can file an eviction lawsuit in court.
Note: The notice should be served to the tenant personally, however it can also be posted on the premises of the rental unit, sent via certified mail, or left at the rental unit with a resident at least 15 years old.
