30-Day Notice of Termination of Tenancy
(Tenancy Less Than One Year)
Tenant(s) in possession of the premises at ________________________________________________,
City of _________________________________, County of ____________________________, California.
YOU ARE HEREBY NOTIFIED that effective THIRTY (30) DAYS from the date of service on you of this notice,
the periodic tenancy by which you hold possession of the premises is terminated, at which time you are required to
vacate and surrender possession of the premises. Your failure to vacate the premises will result in the initiation of
legal proceedings against you to recover possession of the premises, damages for every day of occupancy after the
expiration date of this notice, and costs of suit, including attorney fees.
State law permits former tenants to reclaim abandoned personal property left at the former address of the tenant,
subject to certain conditions. You may or may not be able to reclaim property without incurring additional costs,
depending on the cost of storing the property and the length of time before it is reclaimed. In general, these costs
will be lower the sooner you contact your former landlord after being notified that the property belonging to you was
left behind after you moved out.
