Re: Notice of Intent to Vacate
Dear (Name of Manager or Lessor),
This letter constitutes my written (number of days notice that you need to give) -day notice that I will be leaving my apartment on (date), the end of my current lease.
I am leaving because (new job, rent increase, etc. Be diplomatic as you may need a referral in the future).
I expect that my security deposit of ($___), given to you on (date), will be refunded in full, since the apartment has been left in good condition.
I can be reached at (new phone number and address) after (your moving day).
Sincerely, (your name)
Now all you have to do is fill in the blanks and check your lease for any other information required. Please be aware if you are not leaving at the end of your current lease, and instead are breaking your lease, there may be additional language and procedure to follow. Check with your lease to confirm.
