The Tennessee thirty (30) day termination letter, in regards to Statute 66-28-512(b), may be used by a landlord to notify a tenant that their lease is being terminated. The landlord does not need a specific reason to terminate the lease agreement (as long as the reason is not in discrimination/retaliation of the tenant). The termination letter provides the tenant with 30 days to vacate the rental unit. After the 30 day window has passed (and the tenant has failed to move out), the landlord can file an eviction lawsuit in the Circuit/General Sessions Court in the county of the rental property.
Note: The 30 day notice period begins on the date that the next rent payment is due.
