A Nebraska 7-Day Notice to Quit (Non-Payment of Rent) is a letter used when rent goes unpaid when due. After receiving the notice, the tenant will have 7 days to cure the breach of non-payment. If after the notice of nonpayment and the allotted 7 days goes by with rent unpaid, the landlord may terminate the rental agreement.

In many cases, the decision to terminate the contract is a judgment call. If the landlord feels that the tenant is communicating and doing everything they can to make do the unpaid rent, giving the tenant an extra few days can save both parties a lot of hassle and money. Once the landlord accepts the late rent in full, they can no longer terminate the lease agreement unless the tenant is late again on the next payment cycle, which the landlord will have to send another notice to quit giving the tenant 7 days to pay rent.
