The West Virginia notice to quit, in accordance with § 55-3A-1, is a form that is given to a tenant out of courtesy from the landlord to identify that the tenant has broken a condition of their lease agreement before filing an eviction action. The notice will usually represent a sign from the landlord that if the tenant corrects the issue, such as paying rent that is past due or fixing a material violation, that the lease will be back in compliance. This notice should be given to the tenant via Certified Mail while the landlord collects and documents the return receipt.
