California Commercial Tenant – Estimated Rent Due

Commercial landlords have the option of serving a 3 day notice to pay rent or quit with an estimated rent demand.  This differs from residential tenancies, where an estimated rent demand is defective and would not support an unlawful detainer action.

In California commercial tenancies, the landlord may demand an estimate of rent due, so long as the estimate is reasonable and the amount is clearly identified as being an estimate.

An estimated rent demand in California commercial tenancies is an option, but not required.  Commercial landlords may choose to serve a normal 3 day notice to pay or quit, making sure not to overstate the amount of rent due.
