CCP 1161(2): 3 Day Notice to Pay Rent or Quit in California

CCP 1161(2), also known as Code of Civil Procedure 1161(2), is a California code that discusses a termination of tenancy due to the tenant’s failure to pay rent. When the tenant is behind in the rent, the landlord serves a written 3 day notice to pay rent or quit on the tenant. The law that supports the 3 day notice to pay rent or quit is found in CCP 1161(2). If the tenant does not pay the rent within 3 days of being served with the CCP 1161(2) notice, then the next step for the landlord would be to file an unlawful detainer eviction case in court.

This video discusses the purpose of the CCP 1161(2) notice, its usefulness, and provides valuable guidance and best practices for landlords. The CCP 1161(2) video also discusses how to count the 3 day notice period and provides some “gotchas” that inexperienced landlords need to be aware of.
