Must A Landlord Give Written Notice To Quit To A Tenant Before Suing For Eviction?

Not necessarily. If the lease contains a Notice to Quit provision, the lease may specify that no notice is required before the landlord take the tenant to the District Justice (magistrate), or may set the notice at any length of time. If there is not a notice provision in the lease, then the landlord must give 10 days written notice to the tenant before proceeding with eviction. Service must be made by handing a copy to an adult occupant, or posting the notice on the door.
