A Vermont 30-day notice to quit for non-compliance is a written correspondence from a landlord informing a tenant they’ve broken the material terms of their lease agreement. This notice gives the tenant 30 days to address the issue so they can remain on the premises. Corrective behavior may involve making repairs or altering their behavior on the property.
If the tenant doesn’t rectify the issue and stays on the property, the landlord can initiate legal action and obtain a court order for eviction.
Governing Law — 9 V.S.A. § 4467(b)(1).
Notice Types — A 30-day notice may be curable or noncurable:
- Curable: A curable notice involves a breach the tenant can fix within the allotted time frame.
- Noncurable: This notice involves a breach a landlord deems irreversible. Whether a breach is curable or noncurable is up to the landlord’s discretion, so a tenant can carefully review the notice they received to determine their next steps.
