Rhode Island Immediate Notice to Quit | Illegal Activity

The Rhode Island immediate notice to quit informs a tenant that their lease is canceled due to their illegal activity on the landlord’s property and they must move out or face eviction. Landlords don’t need to give any notice before filing an eviction lawsuit when a tenant engages in illegal activity on their property. However, the landlord may be able to avoid the inconvenience of a trial by serving the tenant with a termination notice. If the tenant complies by quitting the premises, the landlord will not need to pursue legal action (unless they seek the payment of damages related to the tenant’s illegal actions).
