Re: Setting Document Expiry with email notification

You can create a scheduled job to run at certain time as per your requirement (e.g. daily, weekly, etc.) which will go through the documents and set the expiry date (a content model property ideally) based on the logic you want to apply. After setting the expiry date property, it will send email notification. You can customize your logic as you want. 

Here is documentation on scheduled jobs:
