- A 7-Day Notice to Cure (giving the tenant seven days to fix a violation/come back into compliance with the lease or rental agreement)
- A 7-Day Unconditional Quit Notice (allowing you to terminate the tenancy without giving the tenant the opportunity to fix a violation; only available for certain types of violations)
If your tenant fails to comply with the above notices (by paying rent, fixing a violation, or moving out), you can file an eviction lawsuit with the appropriate court.
You might also be able to terminate the lease without cause, depending on the termination provisions within your lease.
In the best-case scenario, your tenant will either rectify the problem or move out. However, some tenants will choose to fight the eviction, which will increase the time and cost of the process. As such, we highly recommend enlisting our support before you begin this process. The smallest mistakes can cost you by give your tenant the opportunity to delay and in certain circumstances avoid the eviction and even hold you liable for other costs.
Keep in mind that you will not be able to force a tenant to move out until they are removed by the Sheriff through the appropriate Eviction proceedings.
