The New Mexico 7-day notice to quit allows a landlord to evict a tenant who has violated the terms of their lease, giving them seven (7) days’ notice to comply with the notice or move out. In accordance with state law, the tenant will have seven (7) days to rectify their lease violations the first time that they receive a notice and can maintain their tenancy if they comply. If the tenant receives a second notice for breaking the terms of their lease, they cannot remedy the situation and must move out within the allotted period. Failure to comply can result in the landlord starting a legal action for the tenant’s removal.
