A notice to quit is the notice often referred to as “eviction”, given by a landlord to a tenant to leave the premises either by a certain date (usually 30 days) or to pay overdue rent or correct some other default ( pets, damage to premises, too many roommates, using the property for illegal purposes, etc.) within a short time. A notice to quit must contain certain information, such as: names of the persons to leave, whether their tenancy is by written or oral agreement, an amount of any financial delinquency and the period it covers, and to whom they should surrender the premises.
