If you have a tenant in Newfoundland or Labrador who owes rent and cannot or will not pay, the first step in the eviction process is to serve them with this form. If the tenant refuses to pay rent promptly, the lease will be considered to be terminated, and the eviction process can continue forward. This notice gives the tenant a chance to pay what they owe or vacate the premises, and it gives you documentation that notices has been properly given before eviction.

Who: You, the landlord, will give this notice to any tenant who fails to pay rental fees consistently and on time. If the tenant is more than 15 days late on monthly rent, you may go ahead and serve this notice so that you may begin the eviction process.

What: This form is the required notice under the Residential Tenancy Act that you must give your tenants in order to give them a chance to pay the rent they owe or to vacate the premises before eviction proceedings begin in earnest.

When: The NL Notice to Terminate for Arrears in Rent will be given to any tenant who has fallen behind on paying rent on a fixed term or monthly rental agreement.
