Using The 30-Day Notice To Quit

Whether there have been many issues with a tenant or this is a first time violation, the landlord has the right to begin the eviction process if the tenant has violated the lease agreement for reasons other than non-payment of rent.

This can include:

  • Damaging the property,
  • Having unauthorized animals or residents living at the property,
  • Hoarding,
  • Not maintaining the required health and safety standards.

These are only some examples of lease agreement violations. The issues with a specific tenant and the use of this form can only be determined for their specific lease.

How To Use This Form

Once a landlord has evidence that the lease agreement has been broken by the tenant they can deliver the notice to the tenant. The landlord must then wait 30 days from the time the tenant receives the notice before filing for formal eviction proceedings in court. The landlord will only need to file such forms if the tenant does not vacate the property within the given time.

If the case is heard in court, a judge will make a ruling. If the landlord has followed the appropriate procedures then the ruling will generally be made on their side. If the landlord used intimidation techniques or methods then the ruling may be made differently.

If the judge rules on the side of the landlord then a date will be set with the local authorities for the tenant to be evicted from the property and for the control of the property to be restored to the landlord.
