Missouri Notice to Quit Form | Non-Payment of Rent

Create a high quality document online now!

The Missouri Notice to Quit (Non-Payment), also known as a Written Demand for Rent, is a document used by landlords to inform a tenant about their failure to pay rent when due. In the State of Missouri, landlords are not legally required to give notice about late rent unless there is a stated demand. Landlords should, however, follow suit like the rest of the states and give notice, being it is professional and can save the landlord legal dues and loss of rent.

If the landlord serves the tenant with a written document demanding rent, the landlord should give the tenant 3 to 5 days, like most States, in order to pay rent before being evicted. The landlord must give at least 1 full day for the tenant to pay late rent. If the tenant fails to pay rent on the day demanded, the landlord may then file “a rent and possession lawsuit”.
