Use a 3-day notice to demand payment of rent that is due and owing. A 3-day notice should: state the total amount of money that is owed, provide an itemization of charges to the tenant’s account (e.g. rent, late fees, utility fees, maintenance fees, etc.), and inform the tenant that if rent is not paid within three days after written notice of nonpayment the rental agreement will terminate.Use a 14-day notice to demand compliance with all other material terms of the rental agreement. A 14-day notice should: specify the acts and omissions constituting the breach (e.g. unauthorized pets, unauthorized occupants, excessive damage to the premises, etc.) and inform the tenant that the rental agreement will terminate thirty days after receipt of notice if the breach is not remedied in fourteen days.Use a 30-day notice to terminate a month to month tenancy. At the expiration of the fixed term in a rental agreement (e.g. a one year lease) a tenancy will continue on a month to month basis by operation of law. A landlord may terminate a month to month tenancy by giving written notice to the tenant at least thirty days before the start of a new monthly term.
