What is a Notice to Vacate?

The notice to vacate will have a time-frame set for you to pay or leave. When this period ends, and you are still on the property, it will not be long before you receive a notice of eviction lawsuit and hearing date.

This is an actionable legal tool taken by the new owner or the lender to remove you from the property. An eviction lawsuit (a/k/a unlawful detainer) states that you are illegally living in the property. The person or person filing the unlawful detainer lawsuit against you is meaning business and wants you removed immediately.
