The West Virginia notice to quit for property damage is an optional notice served on a tenant who has damaged rental property beyond normal wear and tear. The document indicates that the tenant must immediately repair the damage or their lease will be terminated. The landlord can also choose not to give the tenant the option to repair and simply end the tenancy. In fact, the landlord can skip the notice period altogether as there is no statutory requirement that they warn their tenant prior to filing a summary eviction suit or unlawful detainer suit.
