New Mexico Eviction Laws

To start the New Mexico eviction process, the landlord must serve any of these written notices on the tenant:

3-Day Eviction Notice

The shortest notice is for failure to pay rent on time or if the tenant has committed a serious or substantial criminal offense such as selling, possessing or manufacturing illegal narcotics on the premises. The notice must specify the amount of rent owed and that the tenant can remain if the rent is paid within the 3-day period.

7-Day Eviction Notice

For other lease violations or to advise the tenant that he or she is not adhering to certain legal obligations, the 7-day notice is given. The notice must specify the lease provision being violated and that it can be remedied within 7 days. If two of these 7-day notices are given within 6-months, the landlord need not allow the tenant to remedy or cure the violation and the landlord can proceed with filing a petition to oust the tenant.

30-Day Eviction Notice

These notices are given if the lease agreement has terminated, if there is no written lease agreement or if the lease has become a month-to-month and the landlord wishes to evict the tenant for any reason.
