Question: What is a Notice to Quit used for?
Answer: A Notice to Quit is used to terminate a periodic tenancy, usually a month-to-month tenancy. No legal notice is needed to evict a resident whose lease has expired and who remains in his unit, but it is good practice to notify him that you expect him to vacate at the end of his lease term. Once rent has been accepted for any time after the expiration of the lease, the resident becomes a month-to-month tenant. To end that tenancy, he must be served with a Notice to Quit. It should terminate the tenancy effective on the last day of a month and be served on the resident at least seven (7) days before the end of that month.
