An eviction notice is a legal document issued in accordance with tenancy laws. These laws vary depending on the country in which you live, but the basic elements of an eviction notice are pretty much the same.
Legally defined, an eviction notice is formal notification to a tenant vacated premises. Reasons for issuing those notices vary considerably, but it should be noted that landlords are within their rights to require a tenant to vacate under certain circumstances, including requiring vacant possession and for unpaid rent.
Eviction notices are generally kept very brief and only contain absolutely basic information. This is important, because the status of the eviction notice depends on being issued in accordance with law. An eviction notice should not contain accusations of any kind, or any information other than the absolute basic notification.
Please note: In nearly all cases, a period of notice is required by law to be given to a tenant prior to formal action to evict. This notice is called a Notice Of Termination Of Lease and is required to be issued prior to any legal action to formally evict a tenant.
It should also be noted that there are some legal grounds for a tenant not to vacate premises under some circumstances depending on applicable laws. Landlord should seek legal advice regarding eviction procedures before taking any action.
