How Much Notice Is Required To End A Month-To-Month Tenancy?

California Civil Code Section 1944 requires that tenants on periodic tenancies (week-to-week or month-to-month) must give the landlord written notice equal to the number of days between rent payments. This means for month-to-month tenancies, a month’s notice is required. For week-to-week tenancies a week’s notice is required. Section 1946.1(b) requires a landlord to give 60 days notice if the tenants have lived in the unit for a year or longer and 30 days if the tenants have lived in the unit for less than a year.
