A ‘ten-day eviction notice’ is a letter that is drafted by a landlord to a tenant. It lets them know that they are late in payment or are in violation of one of the terms that govern their lease agreements. If they do not settle the dispute within ten days, they shall be evicted from the premise altogether.
There is no universal set of laws that govern the use of this document. Each state has its own terms and conditions, which are spelled out in its statutes. This means you have to invest some time to familiarize yourself with those terms before attempting to draft and make use of this notice.
