A landlord cannot evict a tenant without first terminating the tenancy, and this is usually done by written notice. State laws have different requirements for landlords who are looking to end a tenancy, and each state has laws on how to proceed with writing and serving termination notices and eviction papers.
There are typically three types of eviction notices based on cause: Pay Rent or Quit (for not receiving payment), Cure or Quit (for violations of terms) and Unconditional Quit (for repeated violations, serious damages or major offenses).
