The eviction process is one of the most sensitive procedures a landlord is forced to undertake. If negotiations with your non-paying tenant have come to an impasse, sending an eviction warning may persuade your renters to shape up and pay their back rent.

IMPORTANT: This eviction warning does not satisfy the legal requirements imposed by most U.S. states. Each state has required language that must appear in eviction notices if they are to serve as the legal prerequisite before filing in court for eviction. See our list of eviction notices for a complete library of state-specific eviction notices for all situations.

This Eviction Warning is an informal notice to threaten an eviction action.

Landlords should be aware that they may never do a "do it yourself" or "self-help" eviction by changing the locks, threatening physical harm, removing tenants' personal property or other illegal behavior. The only legal recourse available to landlords when a tenant breaches the lease agreement is to file in court for eviction. Landlords have been arrested, indicted and sued when they attempt to coerce tenants to pay the rent through means other than eviction.

The eviction process may be slow, tedious and expensive, but it's the only lawful option available to landlords. Protect your real estate investment by immediately starting the eviction process as soon as the tenant breaches the rental agreement because the process takes months and can always be canceled if the tenant cures the violation.

Who: A tenant who has failed to respond to multiple requests for rent payment.

What: A clear and to-the-point eviction warning.

When: After the agreed-upon grace period has elapsed, but before you have initiated formal eviction proceedings.
Where: This form does not satisfy the state- or province-specific requirements for eviction notices in the United States or Canada. In the U.S. and Canada, use our state-specific and province-specific eviction notices.
