A tenancy-at-will may be terminated by either the landlord or the tenant by giving a notice in writing. In general, a tenant-at-will have to give notice of at least the time between the rent payments. If the rent is paid on a monthly basis, then at least one month’s prior notice is required. However, if the lease is not monthly basis, regardless of how often you pay the rent, a tenant-at-will never has to give more than three months’ notice. The provision regarding terminating the tenancy-at-will is enumerated in Minn. Stat. § 504B.135. It provides in pertinent part as follows:
“(a) A tenancy at will may be terminated by either party by giving notice in writing. The time of the notice must be at least as long as the interval between the time rent is due or three months, whichever is less.
