Minnesota 14 Day Notice to Pay or Quit | NonPayment of Rent
The Minnesota fourteen (14) day notice to pay or quit, via § 504B.135(b), must be served to an “at-will” (or month-to-month) tenant who has not paid rent. The notice provides the tenant with fourteen (14) days to either pay the rent or vacate the unit. If the tenant fails to either pay the owed amount of rent or vacate the property by the end of the fourteenth (14th) day of the notice period, the landlord can file an eviction action in district court. The tenant will then be served with a summons/complaint, informing them of the trial date.
