What kinds of notices to quit are there?

There are three main types of notices to quit.

  • A 3-day notice to quit is used to terminate a tenancy when the tenant has failed to pay rent, violated provisions of the rental agreement, is utilizing the property for an illegal purpose, has caused damage to the property, or has created a nuisance.
  • A 30-day notice to quit is used to terminate a tenancy of a residential property that has been in duration for less than one year.
  • A 60-day notice to quit is used to terminate a tenancy of a residential property that has been in duration for more than one year.

Additionally, certain circumstances require specialized notices to quit. For example, if a tenant's rent is subsidized, then a longer notice to quit must be given. As state and city laws vary, it is important to understand the laws in your area. It is recommended that you check with your local rent board.
