To legally evict a tenant, it is essential your tenant eviction letter is the correct form and is legally served to the tenant to the full letter of the law.
Most evictions begin with either a 3 Day, 30 Day Notice to Vacate or 60 Day Notice to Vacate.
The 3 Day Notice is usually for nonpayment of rent, but may also be given for other breaches of the rental agreement. Examples of other reasons that are grounds for eviction besides nonpayment of rent include having pets without the landlord's consent, collecting waste on the premises, or disturbing the peace of other tenants. What are the Reasons For Eviction?
Whether a 30 or 60 Day Notice to Vacate is served usually depends upon how long the tenant has been renting. If the tenant has been renting the property for under a year - and if they have been renting on a month to month basis - you serve a 30 Day. If over a year a 60 Day Letter.
Most 30 Day and 60 Day Notices to Vacate do not have to include a reason, but there are several exceptions to the general rule. If the agreement is under a Section 8 (Housing Authority) contract or in a local jurisdiction that requires the eviction to be for good cause, the notice will require a reason.
No notice is required when the lease term expires and the tenancy has not been converted to a month to month tenancy by the agreement or by the landlord's consent or conduct.
Evictions after a foreclosure require either a 3 Day or 30 Day Notice, depending on the status of the occupant as the former owner or a tenant of the former owner.
