According to statute there is no requirement that a form be used. The notice must contain the following information:


13-40-106. Written demand.

The demand required by section 13-40-104 shall be made in writing, specifying the grounds of the demandant's right to the possession of such premises, describing the same, and the time when the same shall be delivered up, and shall be signed by the person claiming such possession, his agent, or his attorney.

(a) A tenancy for one year or longer, three months;

(b) A tenancy of six months or longer but less than a year, one month;

(c) A tenancy of one month or longer but less than six months, ten days;

(d) A tenancy of one week or longer but less than one month, or a tenancy at will, three days;

(e) A tenancy for less than one week, one day.

(2) Such notice shall describe the property and the particular time when the tenancy will terminate and shall be signed by the landlord or tenant, the party giving such notice or his agent or attorney.

So long as the key elements are mentioned the written notice can suffice.

the statement regarding Tenancy. Is that if reference to the amount of time spent on the premises or the duration of the lease. For example, I am dealing with a verbal month to month lease. In that case is 10 days notice sufficient?
Real Estate Lawyer: Attorney & Mediator, Lawyer replied 6 years ago
Thank you for your reply.

Tenancy means the period of time the lease agreement was made for. For a verbal month to month, the notice required is 10 days. If you are the landlord you can access a formal notice (although not required) in the link below to make sure all terms are referenced.
