Last Updated: March 19, 2024 by Roberto Valenzuela

Nebraska 30 Day Notice To Comply or Vacate evicts a tenant for a lease violation, such as failing to maintain the premises in a clean and sanitary manner. The tenant must take appropriate corrective action within fourteen (14) calendar days, or else move out within thirty (30) calendar days of receiving notice.

When To Use a Nebraska 30 Day Notice To Comply or Vacate

A Nebraska 30 Day Notice To Comply or Vacate begins the eviction process in one of the following situations:

  • Tenant fails to maintain the rental unit in a clean and sanitary manner
  • Tenant allows unauthorized occupants to reside in the rental unit
  • Tenant parks in an unauthorized area on the premises
  • Tenant allows unapproved pets on the premises
  • Tenant violates any other provisions of the lease

Some types of Nebraska lease termination notice may allow different reasons for termination, or different notice periods. This may also apply to an eviction notice issued because of a lease or legal violation.

How To Write a Nebraska 30 Day Notice To Comply or Vacate

To help ensure the legal compliance of a Notice To Comply or Vacate:

  1. Use the full name of the receiving parties, and address of record, if known
  2. Specify the basis upon which the tenancy will terminate
  3. Specify the termination date of the lease or tenancy
  4. Fill in the full address of the rental premises
  5. Provide updated/current address and phone number information
  6. Print name and sign the notice
  7. Complete the certificate of service by indicating the date and method of notice delivery, along with printed name and signature

It is easy to lose an otherwise justified legal action because of improper notice. Check carefully to ensure enough time after notice is delivered, not when it’s sent.

How To Serve a Nebraska 30 Day Notice To Comply or Vacate

Nebraska landlords may deliver a written Notice To Comply or Vacate by any method which results in actual notification of the tenant. In Nebraska, the following methods of notice have a presumption of legal validity:

  1. Hand delivery to the tenant
  2. Delivery by mail to the tenant’s address of record, or (if unknown) last place of residence

Notice is considered effective from when it comes to the other party’s attention, or reasonably should do so under the circumstances. Mailed notice extends the notice period by three (3) calendar days, to account for variable delivery times.

In almost all cases, notice is legally served when it is received by the other party, NOT when it’s sent. Check specified date of termination carefully to ensure compliance with the legal requirements for a notice period.
