How It Works

If a tenant has not made an appropriate rent payment then the landlord can serve this notice. The landlord will have to wait for the required three-day period before proceeding and filing for a hearing in court. A hearing will be scheduled and the landlord or their representative, as well as the tenant, will appear. If the landlord is granted permission to proceed with the process then they will prepare a date with the sheriff for the eviction.

Notice Period

Once the notice has been given or sent to the tenant, three days are allowed for the tenant to either pay the rent owed or the landlord will begin the legal eviction process. If the notice is handed to the tenant then the three-day period begins immediately. If the notice is sent in the mail to the tenant then often there is an added three days to the notice period. This would mean a total of six days before the landlord could file court paperwork for eviction.

Serving The Notice

The Notice To Pay Rent or Quit can be served in a few different ways. This can be sent by certified mail, regular mail, hand-delivered with a signature of proof or leaving a copy on the premises. See the bottom of the notice itself for service options and documentation.
