New Mexico 7 Day Notice to Comply (1st Violation)

As a landlord, when you have a tenant who is in violation of one of your rules and regulations for the property and/or in violation of the lease or rental agreement other than nonpayment cases, in New Mexico you may file a 7 Day Notice to Comply. This notice gives the tenant seven days to stop violating the terms of your agreement and lets the tenant know that failing to comply will result in termination of the lease and eviction proceedings. This notice is not required for cases in which a tenant has failed to pay rent, and in those cases you may be able to continue with eviction proceedings without warning or notification.

Who: This notification is meant to be served to tenants who are in violation of the rental agreement or lease and who have had no other warnings or notifications to comply within a six-month period. If the tenant refuses to either vacate the premises or stop violating the terms of your agreement within seven days of receiving this notice, you may start the eviction process in New Mexico.

What: This document is a 7 Day Notice of Non-Compliance for a first violation. It serves to warn them to come into compliance or leave the property within seven days, this notice informs them that the lease will be terminated and those eviction proceedings will commence.

When: You can give this notice to your tenant at any point that you notice that they are in violation of your rules and regulations or of the rental agreement or lease. This notice must, however, be given seven days before you file for eviction proceedings with the court in New Mexico. If the tenant stops violating the terms of your agreement within seven days of receipt of this notice, you may not file for eviction.

You may serve your tenant with a 7 Day Notice to Comply via mail, in person, or by leaving it prominently displayed on the front door of the house. To ensure that the tenant receives, reads, and understands the notice, though, either you or a third party may want to deliver it in person to the tenant and retain a copy signed by the tenant for your records.
