An eviction notice for a non-compliance is a document given to a tenant when they have violated a portion of their lease except for the non-payment of rent ( if it is for late rent, use the Notice to Pay or Quit Form). A non-compliance can be described as any terms deemed as a violation to their contract such as a sound complaint, damage to the property, parking in the wrong spot, not maintaining the property (landscaping, shoveling, etc.) or any other reason.

How to Write

After viewing the laws in your State for non-compliance the document may be filled-in. After completing, make two (2) copies and issue one (1) to your tenant and collect another for yourself as it may have to be attached to any eviction filing if they do not move out.

Step 1 – Enter the tenant’s data: Full name, address, lease agreement signature date, notice period (number (#) of days), and a description of the violation by the tenant.

Step 2 – On the bottom of the form the landlord will need to sign and then select from one (1) of the State approved options of sending the notice to the tenant:

  • Delivery in person;
  • Delivery in person to an authorized person on the property;
  • Certified mail.

Once the tenant receives and acknowledges the document it is considered the notice period commencement. The tenant should inform the landlord when the premises is back in compliance so that the landlord may perform an inspection.
