What if I want to move out?

Usually you must tell your landlord in writing at least 60 days before you want to move out. This is called "giving notice".

There are more rules about when to give this notice and what to put in it. Legal clinics can tell you more about this. If you do not follow these rules, you might owe the landlord more money.

This resource gives only general information. You should get legal advice about your own situation.
