Quick Tips: Violation Notices
Tenants can do all sorts of annoying and/or destructive things besides paying rent late. When they do, you can address it quickly and efficiently with a violation notice. Sending them notice creates that dual purpose we love so much - the tenant gets put on notice, and you can document that you notified the tenant (for possible later court hearings).
Warning: These are not eviction notices. They do not satisfy the legal notice requirements for filing an eviction; see our Eviction Notices for this purpose.
Send a violation notice when:
- Tenants have unauthorized pets on the property
- They have unauthorized guests occupying the property
- Neighbors complain they are disturbing the peace
- They fail to maintain the lawn, landscaping or grounds
- They break HOA rules and regulations
- They have damaged the property in some way
- There is an abandoned motor vehicle on the premises
Did you know thinking ill thoughts about one’s landlord constitutes a violation? Not really, but we’re sure you can think of some violations not included here. If so, you can address that too with a custom violation for that special occasion.
