An Oklahoma 15-day notice to quit is a document that landlords use to inform a tenant that they have broken the terms of their lease and must cure their violation or move out before the notice expires. Examples of lease terms that are commonly broken include keeping unapproved pets, permitting more people to live in the rental unit than stated in the lease, prohibited smoking on the premises, and causing a disturbance in contravention of the lease. State law requires the landlord to give their tenants fifteen (15) days’ notice to vacate the rental unit, but only ten (10) days to remedy the non-compliance and retain their lease.
If the tenant has not corrected their breach of the lease after the ten (10) day period has passed, they will have five (5) days remaining to leave the premises. Failure on the tenant’s part to comply with the notice by fixing their violation or moving out before the notice period ends can result in the landlord filing a lawsuit to have them evicted.
