Notice of Termination for Cause

State laws have very detailed requirements for landlords who want to end a tenancy lease agreement for cause. Each state has its own procedures as to how termination notices and eviction papers must be written and delivered to your tenant ("served"). Landlords must follow state rules and procedures exactly as required by local municipalities.

Although terminology varies somewhat from state to state, there are basically three types of termination notices that you might receive if you have violated the rental agreement or lease in some way:

Notice of Termination Without Cause

Even if your tenant has not violated your rental agreement and has not been late on paying rent; a landlord can usually ask you to move out at any time (assuming that you don't have a fixed term lease) as long as the landlord gives you the proper required notice period.

A "30 Day Notice to Vacate" or a "60 Day Notice to Vacate" to terminate a tenancy can be used in most states when the landlord does not have a reason to end the tenancy. The length of the required notice can be slightly longer or shorter in some states.

There are some exceptions for eviction without cause as is the case with dealing with rent control. Many rent control cities, however, go beyond state and local laws that may require the landlord to prove a legally recognized reason for termination. These laws are known as "just cause eviction protection." Tenants only in the states of New Jersey and New Hampshire are protected by just cause eviction protection.

Eviction Lawsuit

Following the tenants receipt of you serving a tenant with a termination notice; if your tenant hasn't moved out or fixed the lease or rental agreement violation, the landlord must properly serve you with a "summons and complaint for eviction" in order to proceed with the eviction action.
