A West Virginia notice to quit for non-compliance is a form delivered to a tenant who has violated their lease agreement warning them that the landlord plans to evict them if they do not remedy the breach or leave the premises immediately. It is possible that the tenant will have no opportunity for recourse if the landlord believes the severity of the violation justifies a lease termination.
In West Virginia, as opposed to most states, there is no requirement that the landlord provides a tenant with a warning whatsoever, and the owner may file for eviction with the court as soon as they’ve discovered the violation. This notice to quit is therefore optional, and can be used to save the landlord time and as a courtesy to the tenant, enabling them to more easily rent property in the future without the record of an eviction suit filed against them.
