West Virginia 30 Day Notice to Terminate Month-to-Month Lease

The West Virginia thirty (30) day notice, (§ 37-6-5), is the notice that must be given to a tenant who is on a month-to-month or “at-will” lease in order for the landlord to be able to legally terminate the rental/lease agreement. The minimum amount of time that the tenant must receive as required under West Virginia law is 30 days.

Note: This notice is for tenants who have not violated the lease agreement. If the tenant has violated the agreement, no such notice is required – the landlord can terminate the rental agreement and file an eviction lawsuit in magistrate court. Although no specific reason is needed to end a month-to-month tenancy, an eviction that is based on discriminatory/retaliatory grounds is illegal.

Step 1 – Put the current date (the date you are filling out the notice on) in the “Notice Date” input line.

Step 3 – Fill out the “Proof of Service” section after the notice has been served on the tenant. Select the service method that was used, and then enter the date/time of service.

Step 4 – Sign and print your name at the bottom of the section, and then enter the date (dd/mm/yyyy).
