The South Carolina 5-day notice to quit is used when a tenant has failed to pay rent on the due date indicated in the rental agreement. If the landlord has included a notice in the lease document that informs the tenant that they will be evicted should they not pay within five (5) days of the due date, the landlord need not provide this notice to quit. However, the absence of this prior warning in the rental agreement will necessitate the use of a separate notice to quit delivered as soon as the tenant has defaulted on their payment.
