Texas 3 Day Notice to Cure or Quit | NonCompliance or Lease Violation

The Texas three (3) day notice to cure or quit, in connection with Article 24.005, is used when a tenant has committed some type of lease violation (or has otherwise not complied with the lease agreement). The notice allows the tenant three (3) days to either cure (fix) the violation(s), or vacate the rental unit. If the tenant does not comply with the notice (fails to remedy the violations or does not move out), the landlord can then file an eviction action in the local Justice of the Peace Court.
