A Delaware 7-day notice to quit is a form that warns a tenant they have failed to comply with their lease agreement. Upon receiving this notice from their landlord, the tenant will have seven (7) days to remedy the breach or the rental agreement will be terminated. Furthermore, the landlord may choose to file an eviction suit against the tenant if they do not vacate the premises after the 7-day notice period.
If the breach of contract is for damages to the property, the landlord may decide to repair the issue themselves (or hire a professional) and bill the tenant for the materials and labor in addition to the subsequent rent payment. This notice may also be used to inform a tenant that this is the second time within the past year that they have committed a similar breach. In this case, the tenant cannot remedy the situation and must vacate the premises within the seven (7) day notice period.
