A Tennessee 30-day notice to quit for non-compliance is a notice landlords issue to tenants in rural counties with less than 75,000 people. This notice applies to counties outside the Uniform Residential Landlord-Tenant’s Act jurisdiction, and it alerts tenants of non-severe breaches unrelated to property damage and non-payment of rent.
If the tenant doesn’t comply with the notice or respond with a rebuttal, the landlord can proceed with the formal eviction process.
Governing Law — TN Code § 66-7-109(b).
Notice Types — In Tennessee, a landlord can issue two types of notices:
- Curable: A curable notice is for minor offenses, like noise disturbances or improper trash disposal.
- Noncurable: A noncurable notice is for more serious violations the tenant can’t correct, such as violent acts or severe disturbances.
