As a landlord, you may need to evict a tenant for one reason or another. Generally considered the first step in the process, an Eviction Notice tells tenants to vacate the property. Using an Eviction Notice helps ensure that the process goes smoothly so that both you and your tenants can move on, while also establishing a record of your eviction attempts in case you need to pursue further legal action.
An Eviction Notice informs your tenant(s) that you plan to start the eviction process to remove them from your property. Whether you're dealing with a problem tenant, the end of a lease, or you simply plan on using the property for another purpose, you need to notify your tenant of your intentions before you can start an eviction lawsuit. The tenant must be given enough time to correct the lease violation or move out, in accordance with your rental agreement and local laws. Your Eviction Notice should include information like: the property's address; the date of any lease or rental agreement; the landlord's name and address; the names of all the tenants being served; the reason for the notice; any information on unpaid rent, the lease expiration, or violated provisions of the rental agreement; and how long the tenant has to vacate the property after receiving the notice. Finally, make sure your notice is served in accordance with state law.
