A Mississippi 14 Day Notice to Quit (Non-Compliance) is a letter used for the purpose of serving a tenant in breach of their rental agreement. For a first-time non-compliance offense, a landlord may serve a tenant the 14-day notice to quit which states that the tenant must cure the non-compliance within 14 days in order to evade an eviction. If cured by the tenant, the lease shall continue as normal.

In the case a tenant commits a second non-compliance within a 6 months period of time, the landlord can serve the tenant a 14-day notice to quit which states that they have 14 days to vacate without the possibility to cure the breach.

How to Write

Step 1 – On the first line, enter the tenant’s name and the address in which they reside. Follow that by entering the date the tenant breached their rental agreement with a detailed description of the noncompliance.

Step 2 – Select the first paragraph if you, the landlord, wish to serve the tenant a 14-day notice and enter a date (typically after the 30th day) for inspection. Select the second paragraph if you wish to serve a 14-day notice to quit, you may only check this paragraph if the tenant committed a second offense with regards to the same type of breach in the last 6 months.

Step 3 – Complete the notice with the date and the landlord’s signature.

Step 4 – After serving the notice upon the tenant, complete the Certification of Delivery by selecting the method by which it was delivered. If delivered directly to the tenant, obtain their signature. This form concludes that the notice has been served properly to the tenant and it can be used as proof later in court.
