FriendsHelper, usually there is a 30 day notice required. But I am curious, too, how and why would a person move from Assisted Living to be purchasing a condo? Usually it is the other way around.

Or is your friend purchasing the condo because a family member will be taking care of her while she lived there? Maybe with the idea of the family member inheriting the condo? Just curious.

READ the contract. At least 30 days prior notice is required and the room has to be clear of all her stuff or they keep billing.

The admissions contract done when she entered the AL will determine what & how & to whom she needs to give written notice. If this AL is part of a chain, the letter may need to go to corporate HQ for them to start the #of days notice countdown.

For my mom old IL (moved from IL to NH), it's was 30 days with a required walk-through by management to assess any damage (& all these costs if needed billed to mom) & return of all keys issued. Broom clean. The "keys" are a big sticky too as if she was issued 3sets & doesn't return all 3, she can be billed for locksmith, all new locks& keys throughout the unit. Usually once mgmt gets your 30 day they will schedule the walk-through. I got a final zero balance due paper from moms IL at the walk through.

She can just say she's leaving as of a certain date. You need to find out how much notice she has to give, she probably has to give at least 30 days notice, which means she'll pay for the 30 days or whatever the notice period is. My mom lives in independent living (and has lived there for 14 years) and where she is requires 60 days' notice (she's on the third owner of the complex), which I think is ridiculous. But what can you do?

So how is she going to care for herself in a condo if she is in assisted living? Has something changed in her health status to enable her to live on her own?
