The Indiana eviction notice forms are used to commence evictions proceedings in the State of Indiana. If a tenant has failed to pay rent when it is due under the terms of the lease, the landlord must provide written notice to the tenant that they have ten days to pay rent or vacate the premises (Use the 10-Day Notice to Quit (Non-Payment of Rent)). If the tenant both fails to pay the rent within the ten days and fails to move out, the landlord may file a Complaint for Eviction with the Local Trial Court.
Notices By Type
10-Day Notice to Quit (Non-Payment of Rent) – This form is used when the tenant is behind in his or her rental payments. Once the tenant has received this notice, he or she has ten days to pay the rent or vacate the property.
30-Day Notice (Month to Month) – This form is used when a landlord seeks to end a month-to-month tenancy.
When is Rent Late?
Rent is late when a tenant has failed to pay it when it is due under the terms of the lease. Tenant has ten days to pay the full amount of the rent upon receiving written notice from landlord to pay or vacate.
How to Evict (Process)
Step 1 – Before evicting a tenant, the landlord must give the tenant a chance to move out or if the tenant has failed to pay rent, to pay the full amount owed. Landlord must provide notice to tenant with the request:
If the tenant is committing waste (destroying the property), the landlord does not need to provide notice in order to commence the eviction process.
Step 3 – The landlord must have the complaint and summons served on the tenant and the tenant will have to show up in court on the date specified by the clerk. If the tenant does not respond, the court will issue an order granting possession to the landlord.
