The notice to comply or quit is a form that is required when identifying and informing a tenant of a material violation of their lease agreement (for all violations that do not relate to the late payment of rent). The notice may be for a noncompliance created by the tenant but also has the option of being cured before the time period ends. If the notice period ends, and the issue remains on the premises, then the tenant will be instructed to move-out immediately or face the repercussions of an eviction filing occurring against them by the landlord.
