To start the eviction process, a landlord must first send notice (by first class mail, postage prepaid) informing the tenant of the breach. A 3-day notice is used for non-payment of rent; a 14-day notice is used for other lease violations; and a 30-day notice is used to terminate a month to month tenancy. Once the amount of days in the notice has run, you may use the courts to terminate the lease and remove any tenants that have not vacated the premises.
