Default Notices

Effective June 1, 2018, the law changed regarding default notices. Previously, you had to give tenants notice of default and seven calendar days to cure.  After, you have to give them seven business days to cure.

Judges around the state have been throwing out eviction lawsuits unless the default notice specifically says seven BUSINESS days. They are saying it is not enough to say “seven days” in the notice and then wait seven business days before filing the eviction. The statute does not say how the notice must be worded, but the judges are in control when it comes to evictions.  There is no point in arguing with the judge. Just do things their way, and avoid problems.
