What is an eviction form

An eviction form is used by the owner of a property to evict a tenant. By eviction we mean the tenant is asked to leave the premises, which may be a residential or commercial property. Every lease agreement has a term during which the lease is effective. But sometimes due to certain reasons the lease may be terminated –when the tenant doesn’t pay the rent on time repeatedly, when he breaks any of the terms and conditions or when he is a nuisance or danger to the neighbours. In such a scenario, the landlord may ask the tenant to leave or evict before he takes any legal action if matters get serious.

There are usually three types of eviction forms

  • Pay or quit notice: This is the most commonly used eviction form, where the landlord gives an ultimatum to the tenant to pay the rent within a particular number of days or he has to vacate the premises.
  • Comply or vacate: This form is used for tenants who do not comply with the terms and conditions in the lease and keep breaking the rules regularly. Such tenants may create a problem for the landlord and are asked to comply with the regulations or they can have to leave the property.
  • No-cause notice: In this case there is no particular reason why the landlord wants the tenant to leave. Usually it is done towards the end of the lease agreement, where the landlord does not want to extend the lease. In such a case, he asks the tenant to vacate the property as the lease comes to an end.

Usually, every lessor has to give a notice to the lessee before he can send him an eviction notice to leave the property. The duration of the notice period is mentioned in the lease agreement.
