Notice to Perform Law and Legal Definition

This notice is used by a landlord when the tenant breaks a condition of the lease, and they can fix the problem. This is different from a notice to pay which is used when the tenant doesn’t pay the rent. It is typically used in commercial leases. For example, a tenant might use the property to do something that’s not allowed, change the property, or refuse to keep up or fix the property. A notice to perform covenant or quit is used when there has been a curable breach other than nonpayment of rent, for example, breach of a covenant not to assign or sublet the premises. Requirements of a notice to perform vary by local area, so requirements in your area should be consulted.
