What does a 30-day Pay or Vacate Notice mean?
A 30-day notice is a notice to a resident to pay rent or vacate the unit. Once given, the tenant has 30 full days in which to pay rent to the landlord in full. If rent is not received in full, the landlord may start the eviction process.
What does a 30-day Comply or Vacate Notice mean?
A 30-day notice is a notice to the resident to comply with the terms of the Rental Agreement or Rules and Regulations. The notice will state three things: first, the section of the Lease, Rules and Regulations, or statute that the resident has violated (i.e. payment of utilities or quiet enjoyment for the other tenants); second, the specific conduct that violated the rental agreement or rule (i.e. having loud parties or an unauthorized occupant); and third, what actions the resident must take to come back into compliance.
Once given, the tenant has 30 full days within which to comply. If the notice has not been complied with after the 30 day period management may begin eviction procedures.
A 30-day notice has a lifespan of 60 days. If the violation occurs again within 60 days of the service of the notice, the landlord may begin the eviction action.
