An Indiana immediate notice to quit can be used by a landlord who has the right to terminate a tenancy and evict a tenant without notice but chooses to notify them that they must relinquish possession of the rental unit. The landlord is not obligated by law to provide notice to tenants who have committed certain violations on the rented property.
These incurable violations include committing waste on the property, maintaining possession after the lease has ended, refusing to pay rent in advance (if such a provision exists in the lease agreement), or living on the premises without permission. However, local courts and judges often appreciate when a landlord files a notice to quit form along with their complaint and summons to show that they have demonstrated due diligence.
