Iowa 7 Day Notice to Cure or Quit | NonCompliance

The Iowa seven (7) day notice to quit, referenced in Code 562A.27, is to be used for tenants who have committed “curable” lease violations. The notice states that the tenant must fix (aka “cure”) their violation(s) within the seven (7) day time frame. If the tenant does not cure the violation within seven days, they will then be served with a three (3) day notice to quit and be forced to vacate the rental unit. Only after both of the notices have been served to the tenant can the landlord file an eviction lawsuit.

How to Write

Step 1 – Put the full name(s) of the tenant(s) at the top of the notice in the “To:” section.

Step 2 – Enter a detailed description of the violation(s). If you need more room to write a detailed summary of the violation(s) that the tenant has committed, attach another piece of paper to the notice.

Step 3 – Fill in the date that the rental agreement will be terminated on.

Step 4 – Enter the current date and then sign your name. Print your full name out and then provide a contact number/return address.
