California 3 Day Notice
The California 3 Day Notice is the form that landlords use in California when they want to evict a tenant because the tenant is doing something that they are not supposed to be doing under the rental agreement.
For example, a California 3 day notice might be used if the tenant stops paying rent. Another reason why a California 3 day notice will be used is if the tenant is violation a term of the rental agreement (such as smoking when the lease prohibits smoking). Yet another reason why a California 3 day notice might be used is if the tenant is damaging the property or causing a nuisance.
It’s very important to realize that even though a California 3 day notice is used to begin the termination of tenancy process in each of the above scenarios, there is a different type of California 3 day notice to be used in each scenario, which means the landlord must make sure to use the correct type of 3 day notice form depending on the circumstances of the case.
- California 3 Day Notice under CCP 1161(2) used for a 3 day pay or quit. This is used when the tenant is not paying rent.
- California 3 Day Notice under CCP 1161(3) for a 3 day cure or quit. Use this version of the California 3 day notice when the tenant is violating a term of the agreement, such as smoking.
- California 3 Day Notice under CCP 1161(4) for a 3 day notice to quite California form. This California 3 day notice form is used if the tenant is a nuisance.
