Justipedia explains Cure or Quit

There are many reasons why a landlord may send a cure or quit notice to their tenant. For example, they may have an unauthorized tenant living with them, they may be making excessively loud noises late in the night, they may be smoking in a non-smoking apartment, etc.

After a tenant receives a cure or quit notice from a landlord, then it is up to them to fix the problem or face eviction.
