A California 14-day notice to quit is a vital legal document empowering survivors to terminate their lease swiftly and without penalties. Designed for individuals experiencing domestic violence, stalking, or sexual assault, this form ensures a confidential exit from an unsafe living situation.
Tenants providing necessary documentation, such as a restraining order or police report, can invoke this provision, allowing them to vacate the premises within 14 days. During this notice period, tenants are accountable for any outstanding rent, while landlords must relieve them from lease obligations beyond this timeframe.
Governing Law — Calif. Civil Code § 1946.7.
Qualified Third (3rd) Party – To comply with the law, tenants must attach the “Tenant Statement Qualified Third (3rd) Party Statement Under Civil Code 1946.7,” reporting domestic violence incidents to qualified professionals like counselors, physicians, nurses, or therapists.
