When To Use The Idaho 3 Day Notice To Quit Form

The first step in an eviction process is providing a notice to a tenant who has violated their tenant agreement. This form should not be used for failure to pay rent as the state of Idaho makes other provisions for this, see the appropriate form here: 3 Day Notice To Pay Rent or Quit. In most cases, this form will be used for serious breaches of the tenancy contract. Here are some examples of when to use this form, although it is not limited to these uses:

  • The tenant is in possession of illegal substances,
  • Extra individuals living in the property,
  • A pet is kept in the property against the landlord’s wishes,
  • There has been undue damage done to the property,
  • The occupant has been disturbing other tenants,
  • The occupant is risking the safety of other tenants (e.g. a hoarder).

landlords really need to know

Remember these only apply if they are clearly stated in the lease agreement. This form should only be used if there has been a clear violation of this agreement.

The Procedure

If a violation has been committed then the landlord should serve this notice. It is required by law in Idaho to allow three days before filing the paperwork for an eviction. This gives the tenant sufficient time to quit the property before the landlord is required to take the action any further.

Ensuring You Give Notice

landlords must understand the length of notice required. If this form is mailed to the tenant then an additional three days are required to ensure the tenant has received the form.

How To Serve This Form

According to Idaho state law there are several options when it comes to serving the 3 Day Notice To Quit form.

  • Certified mail,
  • Regular mail,
  • Delivered directly to the tenant with a signature proving it was received,
  • Leaving a copy on the premises if the landlord has access.

Commonly Asked Questions

  • What kinds of violations can I evict tenants for?
  • Once again this must be clearly stated in the lease agreement so that the landlord will have legal precedence to take this matter to court for a legal eviction.
  • Wouldn’t it be easier to do this myself?
  • Under no circumstances should a landlord attempt an eviction themselves. This has serious legal repercussions and only service a Notice To Quit will achieve the desired results.
