The West Virginia notice to quit for non-payment is a form that a landlord may choose to serve on their tenant who is behind on rent to demand that they pay the balance owed immediately or quit the premises. This is an optional, prelawsuit step that a property owner can use if they don’t wish to immediately file an unlawful detainer action. This step is optional because there is no statute in West Virginia that requires that a landlord notify their tenant before filing an eviction suit with the magistrate or circuit court. The tenant will be able to retain tenancy if they pay the amount in arrears along with any late fees, added interest, and, if the case goes to court, associated court costs.
