Maryland 14 Day Notice to Quit | Clear and Imminent Danger

The Maryland fourteen (14) day notice to quit is an eviction letter used to terminate the tenancy of an individual who severely violates their lease. According to § 8–402.1(a)(2)(B), the tenant’s violations must pose a “clear and imminent” danger to the dwelling, themselves, other tenants, the landlord, or any other individual on the leased property. The notice states that the tenant must vacate the rental unit within fourteen (14) days. If the tenant has not moved out within the notice period, the landlord can file a Breach of Lease action (a.k.a. eviction lawsuit) in the district court of the rental property’s county.
