A landlord uses a 5-day notice form to evict a non-compliant tenant from the leased premises. The 5 days are given to the tenant to address the problem mentioned in the eviction notice. If the problem is not fixed within 5 days, the landlord can evict the tenant after a certain period of time. The eviction notice is most commonly sent when a tenant fails to pay rent. It can also be used for other violations of the lease agreements, such as keeping authorized pets, sub-letting, or not following building rules.
The following states require a five-day notice to quit be given for violations of the rental terms: Alaska, Arizona, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Louisiana, Nevada, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

If the tenant makes full payment, it must be accepted by the landlord, and eviction cannot happen. If the tenant makes a partial payment, the landlord decides to accept or decline. If accepted, it will constitute partial compliance with the notice, and eviction cannot be done. If no payment is made, legal action to evict can be taken.
For breach of the rental agreement, if the tenant fully addresses the issues within five days, then eviction will not be possible. However, if partial compliance is made by the tenant, it is for the landlord to decide to accept or not. If no compliance is made, court action can be taken.
To take legal action to evict the tenant, an “unlawful detainer” must be filed with the court. However, it is a lengthy and complex process; therefore, efforts must be made to settle the matter with the tenant before proceeding.
