If the tenant does not comply, a landlord must notify a tenant in writing of any perceived noncompliance except for the failure to pay rent. If the issue can be corrected, the tenant will have seven days in which to make the correction. If the tenant still has not complied after seven days, the landlord can begin the eviction process based on noncompliance. If the issue is one in which the tenant should not be given an opportunity to correct it (i.e., destruction, damage, intentional misuse or continued unreasonable disturbance), the tenant will have seven days to surrender the premises.
Each eviction case is unique, so be sure to obtain legal advice. A landlord may not evict you solely in retaliation for the tenant complaining to a governmental agency about code violations or asserting other tenant rights.
