How to Evict a Tenant in Ventura for Non-Payment of Rent
Have you ever wondered how to evict a tenant in Ventura for non-payment of rent?
Notice to Pay Rent or Quit: 3 days
Create and serve a “3 Day Notice to Pay Rent or Quit.”
This is a required prerequisite before you can file the actual eviction case in court. The 3 Day Notice to Pay Rent or Quit demands that the tenant pay you the rent owed within 3 days.
Wait for the notice period to expire.
Once the 3 Day Notice to Pay Rent or Quit is served on the Ventura tenant for failure to pay the rent, you have to wait 3 days to see whether or not the tenant complies with the notice and pays the rent. If the tenant complies by curing the rent default, there is nothing else to do! If the tenant fails to pay the rent due in Ventura within the 3 day notice period, then once the notice period has expired, it is time to begin the formal eviction process against your Ventura tenant.

These are the court documents that need to be filed when beginning a new eviction case against the Ventura tenant for non-payment of rent.
