Landlords should make sure that they are aware that there are two different types of notices to quit in Massachusetts:

  • Notice to quit for non-payment of rent
  • Notice to quit for a violation of the lease other than non-payment of rent or for notice that the lease will not be extended further

Failure to use the right notice can cause a landlord to lose his eviction case and/or delay eviction for months.
