We are on a month to month lease after spending 3 years in our home. Rent is paid first of the month. We will be leaving soon and need to give 30 days notice. I'm a little confused as to whether the 30 days starts from the day the letter is mailed, or if we need to fulfilling the next billing cycle.

For example, if we were to give notice on the 15th of this month (May) would we vacate on/by April 15th?... Or at the end of the April billing cycle, April 31st. Thanks

You can always confirm with whomever you're renting from. But typically 30 days notice means you'll be leaving in 30 days. So if you give notice on May 15th, June 14th would be your last day at the property.

The original lease has expired. There is no lease for the 'month to month'. The expired lease has a HOLDOVER section, which states that if the tenant remains in possession after the expiration of the lease the tenancy will be month to month only and subject to all of the other lease terms and conditions. However, I don't see anything the lease about protocol for giving notice (either during the official dates of the lease or after its expiration).

It is common in Colorado, that the 30 day means 30 days from the last month paid. If your rent is due on the first, then the 30 days notice is for a period of 30 days from the last day of the the current paid rental period.

Disagree. Leases run to the end of the month. That's why we say "month to month". If you are intending to leave May 31st, you would need to give notice no later than April 30th. If you wait until May 1st, you will need to stay until the end of June.

A lease could be written in a different fashion, but this is a typical month to month structure.

This is quite correct. I have no idea where the notion of "30 days notice" comes from, but a month to month lease requires one full calendar month notice. It is also up to you, the one giving notice, to insure the receipt of this notice - which must be in writing, by the way. So either hand deliver it, or use a form of delivery that has confirmation: certified mail, return receipt for example.

The situation is the same in case it is the landlord who wants you to vacate.

Of course you and the landlord can work out any other arrangement that suits both of you.

Thanks everyone we will likely be giving notice next week... And therefore vacating on or before June 30th.
