There are many ways a tenant can be in non-compliance with the lease agreement or law. Non-payment of rent is the most common. Others include allowing unauthorized occupants to live in the unit, allowing unauthorized pets to be in the unit, damaging the property, not keeping up the landscaping, criminal activity, unsanitary living conditions, and many more. Most noncompliance’s the landlord is required to serve a Ten Day Noncompliance notice to the tenant. This notice will outline the noncompliance, and gives the tenant 10 days to come into compliance.
There are some noncompliance’s that only require a 5 Day Health and Safety Notice, and in the instances of criminal activity, there are times where the landlord may deliver an Immediate Notice of Termination. The landlord is able to file eviction actions on each notice, so long as the landlord is filing after the required time frame allowing the tenant their remedial days.
