Use our notice to pay rent or quit template to let past-due tenants know they need to catch up on missing payments, and how long they have to do so before you have to start the eviction process.
What to Know Before Using Our Notice to Pay Rent or Quit Template
While you understand that life can be unpredictable, if your tenants have stopped paying their rent altogether, it may be time to create a notice to pay rent or quit document to remind them of their responsibilities. By creating a paper trail that begins with this document, you are showing your tenant that you are ready to move forward with the eviction process. Potential judges will also see that you gave your tenant ample time to pay their back due rent.
Our template allows you to quickly state the tenants and properties information and then inform your tenant how much back rent they owe you, what forms of payment you will accept, and how long they have to pay this sum to you before you will terminate the lease and begin the eviction process.
It is important to create this document before the amount of late rent reaches the point where your tenant will be unable to correct the situation and you will be forced to start a lawsuit if you want to collect past due rent. As your goal is to fill your apartments or rent your property out, you want to give tenants the ability to catch up on late rent, and giving them this notice is the first step in this process.
