"Proper" notice depends on circumstances.
If anyTenant or resident has lived in the rental property for less than one-year, the owner/landlord only needs to serve them a 30-day "No Cause" notice, consistent with State law.
If every tenant or resident has lived in the rental unit for a year or more, the owner/landlord normally must give the tenant(s) 60 days advance written notice.
However, the owner/landlord can reduce the 60 days to 30 days if all of the following are met:
- The landlord has contracted to sell the rental unit to another person who intends to occupy it for at least a year after the tenancy ends.
- The selling landlord must have opened escrow with a licensed escrow agent or real estate broker, and
- The selling landlord must have given the tenant the 30-day notice no later than 120 days after opening the escrow, and
- The landlord must not previously have given the tenant a 30-day or 60-day notice, and
- The rental unit must be one that can be sold separately from any other dwelling unit. (For example, a house or a condominium can be sold separately from another dwelling unit.) 203
