Dear Astoria Tenant:
No. The thirty day notice is a statutory notice and the service of the notice is a necessary element of proof.
In state or out of state, a lawyer should prepare the notice. A process server should serve the notice.
The answer provided to you is in the nature of general information. The general proposition being that you should try to avoid a bad outcome if you can.
I agree with my colleagues. An affidavit of service needs to be produced upon serving the notice and you should not serve it yourself.
This response will not create an attorney-client relationship.
