Minnesota Notice to Quit Form | Non-Payment of Rent

Updated July 18, 2023

A Minnesota Notice to Quit (Non-Payment of Rent) is a document used by landlords to notify a tenant that they intend to terminate the tenancy due to unpaid rent. For leases that are subject to written lease agreements, the landlord and the tenant can agree on how much notice is required before the landlord may initiate eviction proceedings; if the lease agreement is silent, the landlord may initiate proceedings immediately. If the tenant fails to pay the owed rent, both parties, landlord and tenant, will then have to present their cases in court. Under Minnesota law, even if the landlord prevails in the eviction hearing, the tenant may remain in the property by paying the owed rent, plus the court fees the landlord incurred in bringing the proceedings.

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.
