How and when do you serve a notice to pay rent or quit?


Answer by  patti (29325)

A "notice to pay or quit" is an eviction notice. The procedure for evicting a tenant varies from state to state. Generally, you must show proof that the tenant has failed the lease/rental agreement, and ask the Court to intervene. Google "eviction AND [your state]" for details on how to proceed.

State law governs notices to pay rent or quit. Notice is customarily served by certified mail or posting after the tenant fails to pay rent required by the lease.

The laws regarding eviction vary from state to state. The eviction laws of any state are available online. Usually notice must be delivered in writing in person or by registered/certified mail. There is a time frame in which steps for eviction must be carried out.

The law regarding eviction is different in each state. For the most part, the notice has to be in writing and hand delivered to the tenant. You can find the law for a specific state online and get details of the process.

As soon as the rent is late, you can choose to serve an eviction notice. How much time you want to elapse before the first notice is sent is up to you. Keep in mind that the notice is just the first step in the eviction process.

How and when you serve notice is dictated by your rental contract, if there is one and the laws of the state.

You must serve a notice to pay rent or quit an apartment in writing within 30 days of the date you wish to quit the apartment unless the lease on the apartment states otherwise. This is the law in New York State.
