This answer was rated:

i own rental property in Jefferson county ohio. The home has been for sale and we have tennants who have been renting the property with no lease. We would like to have them vacate the property. I spoke to them today and gave them a verbal notice that we need them to vacate the property by sept 30th and told them to expect a letter verbalizing that same information. I cannot find a specific 30 day notice - only the "notice to leave premises" form that is used for the 3 day notice. Can I use that form and do I need to have a reason to ask them to leave ?
Hello and thanks for sending us this question. No particular form of notice is required. In order to cancel a month to month tenancy all that is required is 30 days advance notice, in writing and sent by certified mail, or hand delivered, so you know they received it. It only has to say in plain English that their lease is being canceled effective September 30 and will not be renewed for October. Ask them to make arrangements with you for final inspection, turn over of keys, transfer of utilities and anything else you feel is necessary.
