While renters' rights are fairly well protected in Albuquerque, it's worth checking your tenancy agreement thoroughly before signing. If you break any aspect of your contract, such as delaying rent payment or causing damage to the unit, your landlord can give you 7-day notice to resolve the problem or leave. Landlords must issue this notice within 30-days of the situation arising. Once 7-days are up, you will be obliged to move out or face eviction. If you resolve the issue within 7-days, you can stay, but a repeat offense will result in a non-negotiable second 7-day notice period, after which you must vacate the premises.
