The Tennessee 14 Day Notice to Quit (Non-Payment) is a form delivered to a tenant as official written notice when the tenant fails to pay rent on the day it was due. It will allow the tenant up to 14 days to remedy the rent after being served the notice. If the tenant fails to pay within that time frame, they will have to vacate on the 30th day.
For failure to vacate, the landlord may obtain a detainer warrant to bring the tenant to court upon a date no less than 6 days from delivery of the warrant. During the court hearing, a tenant will have the chance to tell the judge their side of the story. If the tenant fails to show up for court, the landlord automatically wins and will have the right to vacate the tenant.
