Have you given notice?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
She has been told 3 weeks. Does she have to have it in writing?
Expert:  Remus2004 replied 1 year ago.

Yes, and it really should be 28 days.

one could argue that 14 is adequate but I would never suggest it.

Notice must be in writing though.

Once that is done you don't need a court order to evict though.

Can I clarify anything for you?
