A Notice for Eviction for Nonpayment typically conveys the amount of rent due and the times and place the tenant can pay the rent. The name of the tenant and the property address and county are also required on the form.
A landlord can evict a tenant who has violated the lease by failing to pay his monthly rent. Specific legal guidelines must be followed in order for the eviction to be legal. Tenant eviction procedures vary by state, but some states require a form entitled Three-Day Notice to Pay Rent or Quit. This gives the delinquent tenant time to pay the rent owed or move out. He must do either one or the other within three days after service of the notice.
The form is completed and served to the tenant, either personally or through the use of a hired individual. If the notice is left on the door of the unit, the landlord must mail a copy for the service of the notice to be legal. The landlord can then wait three days; if the tenant has failed to exercise the options by either paying the rent or moving out, the landlord can proceed to evict the tenant.
