Letter of Eviction

A letter of eviction is used to evict a tenant from a property, usually an apartment or a house. It could be for not paying the rent, or for violating the contract they signed when they got the lease. For example, if someone leased a house, didn’t pay the rent, and had loud parties every night, the landlord would send them a 30 day letter of eviction. This document means that if they have not vacated the premises in 30 days, the landlord plans to take legal action against them.
