A Missouri 10-Day Notice to Quit (Non-Compliance) is a legal memo sent to a tenant who is in breach of contract for any reason other than the non-payment of rent. When a tenant violates a provision in the lease, the owner or whoever holds the lease can give 10 days’ notice to vacate the premises. The tenant will then have to decide as to whether to remedy the breach or move out of the premises. After the 10 days have gone by, the landlord has the right to re-enter the premises to see whether or not the breach has been fixed.

If the landlord suspects the tenant is engaging in illegal possession, sale, or distribution of controlled substances, the landlord will need to file a petition to prove it.
