By definition, a notice is a document which notifies, informs, or warns people about something, usually in order to do something or make necessary preparations. For example, an employee usually needs to write a two-week notice letter when he/she plans on resigning from his/her current job.
A tenant notice, as its name suggests, is any free notice given by the landlord to a tenant typically to notify him/her about something. For instance, when a tenant violates a rule or two, or any term from the lease agreement, the landlord takes action, and depending on his discretion, may send a tenant notice.
If a tenant violates rules, he/she needs to be aware of the consequences he/she must face. This is where the landlord sends a tenant notice.
When tenant violates the agreement of paying rent on time, and has done the violation more than once, the landlord will send him a late rent notice. If this continues, the landlord will send him a warning notice, stating the consequence if the tenant fails to oblige.
Finally, if the tenant does not comply with the conditions given by the landlord, he/she will be asked to leave through a notice to vacate or eviction notice.
A tenant notice is necessary for the parties to understand each other and properly communicate with each other.
