How do I give notice to end my weekly or daily rental?
This question has an answer and 4 steps

3. Figure out when to give your landlord the notice

If you rent by the day or the week, you must give the notice to your landlord at least 28 days (4 weeks) before your termination date. NOTE: the law says you must send it 5 days earlier if you mail it.

To count the days correctly, start with the day after you will give the notice. Call that day 1. Then continue to count all the days after that up to the termination date. If the termination date is day 28 or more, this is enough days.

Example: You rent by the week and your rent is due each Saturday, so your termination date must be a Friday. You decide you want your termination date to be Friday, November 6. You must give your landlord the notice no later than Friday, October 9. If you mail it, you must mail it by October 4.
