Yes, the notice can be given to the tenant by you, if she wants to end the tenancy. If the tenant has been there for less than a year, a 30-day notice to vacate would need to be given and a 60-day notice, if more than a year. She can also post the notice and send it via certified mail as well, so there is evidence it was received and they were placed on notice.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
