A Notice to Cure is a document served by a landlord on a tenant, alleging lease violations that must be fixed within a certain amount of time in order to prevent eviction. The timeframe can vary from a few days to 30 days or longer. If you, the tenant, do not “cure” the problem before the deadline on the notice, the landlord can terminate your lease and start an eviction proceeding.
A landlord might allege that a tenant is violating the lease in a number of ways:
- By failing to have insurance.
- By failing to meet fire or other city codes.
- By subletting or assigning part or all of the space without permission.
- By storing hazardous materials on-site.
- By using a commercial building for residential use.
- By creating a nuisance.
As commercial leases are complex, the list of reasons a landlord can send a Notice To Cure is almost endless. To preserve your legal rights and bar an unfair legal action against you, contact an experienced commercial landlord-tenant immediately upon receiving a Notice To Cure.
