The South Carolina fourteen (14) day notice to comply or quit is used when evicting a tenant who has violated the lease or rental terms. The landlord must serve this notice to the tenant before filing an eviction lawsuit (otherwise known as an “Ejectment” action) in the magistrate court. After the letter has been served, the tenant will have fourteen (14) days to either cure the non-compliance listed in the notice or vacate the rented property. If the fourteen (14) day period expires and the tenant has neither corrected the non-compliance nor moved out, the landlord may terminate the lease and initiate the eviction proceedings.
