A Massachusetts 14-day notice to quit for non-payment of rent is a document used by landlords to inform tenants who fail to pay rent on time that they intend to repossess the premises.
After receiving this notice, tenants have 14 days to pay all past-due rent, fees, and interest to avoid eviction. If the tenant complies and pays the rent, their tenancy will continue as normal. The landlord must wait 14 days before initiating an eviction lawsuit, and the tenant has until the day the answer is due in court to pay the landlord.
