Providing The Tenant With The Right Notice
This notice is used for tenants that are violating a clause in the original rental contract. This does not apply to not paying rent but rather a specific aspect of renting the property that the tenant agreed to. It is used to provide the tenant with 10 days to cure the violation or leave the property completely.
Ways To Serve The Tenant
There are various methods to serve the tenant with this notice. The quickest, although not necessarily the easiest, is to hand the notice to the tenant personally and receive a signature proving delivery.
Alternative methods include: mailing the notice to the property and leaving the notice in the property if the landlord has access.
Reasons To Use This Form
It is important to remember that this form is not to be used for non-payment of rent. Instead the Notice To Cure or Vacate is for direct violations of the rental agreement. Some examples of these violations are:
- Additional individuals living in the property not named on or allowed by the rental agreement,
- Decorating the property if not previously agreed to by the landlord,
- Having a pet on the property without the consent of the landlord.
There are many more examples of violations but all should be clearly outlined on the rental agreement before they are contested with a Notice To Cure Or Vacate.
When serving a Notice To Cure Or Vacate, the state law of Indiana states that landlords must allow for 10 days before further legal action is taken. This allows the tenant time to cure the issue or breach of contract.
