The Massachusetts 14-Day Notice to Quit (Non-Payment) is a type of real estate document used between landlords and tenants when a tenant fails to pay rent on time. After receiving this notice, a tenant will have 14 days to cure the rent, paying all past-due-rent and any fees or interest that may have accumulated. In the event that the tenant cures the rent before the day the answer is due, the tenancy shall go on as normal.
If the tenant complies and pays rent in debt but somehow due to the failure of delivery by any government municipality, the courts shall allot the tenant another 7 days in order to cure the rent.
