There is no typical looking eviction notice, but every notice is required to contain certain information. The information written in the notice matters more than how it is presented.
The notice may have a title with one of the following statements:
Within this notice, the landlord is required to state how long the tenant has to move or comply before the case is brought to court. In some states, a landlord may legally give an eviction notice with no opportunity to comply, and the tenant must vacate by the given date.
Some resources may say that an eviction notice should be typed and properly formatted with correct spelling, but this is not always the case. If you receive an eviction notice that does not appear to be professionally written, it may still be considered a legal document, as long as it has the required information.
It is important to know what is required of landlords to evict in your area. A lawyer can clear up the laws specific to your jurisdiction. Tenants who are looking for free or low-cost legal aid can find resources on USA.gov’s website.
