The Missouri 10-day notice to quit informs a tenant that they may be evicted for violating their lease agreement and that they have ten (10) days to either fix the violation or leave the premises. The landlord will decide whether the tenant can cure their violations to retain their right to occupancy. If the option to cure is granted, the tenant must remedy the violation in ten (10) days. Otherwise, they must vacate within ten (10) days regardless of what measures they take to cure the lease infraction. Tenants that fail to comply with the notice conditions may have an unlawful detainer action (eviction lawsuit) filed against them by the landlord.
