  7. Landlords have different rights to evict a tenant if they are not following the lease. Although terminology varies somewhat from state to state, there are basically three types of termination notices for tenancies that landlords terminate due to tenant misbehavior: Pay Rent or Quit Notices are typically used whenthe tenant has not paid the rent. They give the tenant a few days (three to five in most states) to pay the rent or move out ("quit"). Cure or Quit Noticesare typically given after a tenant violates a term or condition of the lease or rental agreement, such as a no-pets clause or the requirement to refrain from making excessive noise. Usually, the tenant has a set amount of time in which to correct, or "cure," the violation. A tenant who fails to do so must move or face the possibility of an eviction lawsuit. Unconditional Quit Notices are the harshest ofall. They order the tenant to vacate the premises with no chance to pay the rent or correct a lease or rental agreement violation. In most states, unconditional quit notices are allowed only when the tenant has: repeatedly violated a significant lease or rental agreement clause been late with the rent on more than one occasion seriously damaged the premises, or engaged in serious illegal activity, such as drug dealing on the premises. However, in some states, landlords may use Unconditional Quit Notices for transgressions that would require Pay or Quit Notices or Cure or Quit Notices in other, more tenant-friendly states. In these strict states, landlords may extend second chances if they wish, but no law requires them to do so.
