Create a high quality document online now!

The Minnesota 14-Day Notice to Quit (Non-Payment of Rent) is a document used by landlords in order to notify a tenant that they intend to terminate the tenancy within 14 days of notice to quit if payment of rent is not paid. The tenancy will resume back to normal pending the tenant pays rent within the 14-day time frame. If payment goes unpaid after 14 days, the landlord can officially bring a judicial eviction against the tenant. Both parties, landlord and tenant, will then have to present their cases in court.

This notice must be delivered to the tenant properly which means it must be sent via the following ways:

  • Delivered to the tenant personally at their residence.
  • If the tenant is unavailable during the time of delivery, it shall be given to another adult located in the tenant’s rental unit. If not one adult can be found, the notice shall be placed in a conspicuous place on the property.
  • Delivery via certified or first class mail.

Laws –  § 504B.135(b)
