A Montana 14-day notice to quit (non-compliance) is a formal alert to a tenant that they have either violated the terms of their lease or left the property unoccupied. In cases where the tenant has breached a condition of the lease that can be fixed, they are given fourteen (14) days to resolve the problem or leave the property.
The tenant must either correct the issue satisfactorily or vacate the premises before the end of this fourteen-day period. Should the tenant fail to meet the demands of this notice, the landlord then gains the right to initiate eviction proceedings. Additionally, if a tenant has deserted the rental property, this allows the landlord to legally consider the property as relinquished and proceed to lease it to a new tenant.
Fixable violations are those that can be rectified through actions such as paying dues, making repairs, or similar remedies as long as the violation doesn’t fall under the categories specified in § 70-24-422(1)(b) or § 70-24-422(1)(c).
