What information needs to be included on a notice to quit in Connecticut? If it is due to non payment does the notice need to include the amount owed? What if the names are incorrect? Don't want to be evicted, but I think this Notice is incorrect in it's current form.
the Notice to quit I have is for nonpayment of rent within a statutory time period for 3 months. The months in question were all paid before the 10th of the month (statutory in CT). Also there is no amount owed on the notice and the name of one tenant is incorrect - not a misspelling, but an entirely wrong first name.
How should I handle this? We are paid in full to the landlord.
If you want to stay, then I suggest a detailed letter to the landlord stating exactly when, where and how, each of the monthly rents were delivered. (check #'s dates, etc.) Also point out the other errors, refer them to a written lease if one exists, but do not volunteer the correct names. Ask for written signed confirmation that the N/Q was voided AND the prior written lease reinstated.
Otherwise, you will otherwise be on an oral lease month to month. If the landlord persists to an eviction suit. That letter, your proofs and the terms of the written lease will be your defense.
sorry to hear about our problem. If you are serious about staying then you should consult a lawyer with experience in Landlord Tenant matters in your community. There are plenty of them.
If not you can get decent DIY advice through the judicial branch. Attached is a link to there manual on eviction proceedings.
Its not clear if you have written lease of if so when it will expire by its terms. I mention this as it may be that the Landlord can terminate your tenancy for no reason at all or can do so at some future time. You may want to start planning for that eventuality.
