  • The notice must have the address of the leased property.
  • The notice must clarify that the tenant(s) either have to pay the rent or move out from the property within the 3 days after the notice was presented.
  • The notice must be signed by the landlord, or alternatively, by his/her agent and must state the date of issuance.

How to Count The Three Days

After presenting the notice to your tenant(s), you can start counting the three days from the day that the notice was served (not including date of service). In case the third day arrives on a Saturday, Sunday, or a public holiday, then the three day period will conclude on the following Monday, or the following non-holiday. In other words, the three days are counted in accordance to three working days. For instance, if you have issued the 3 day eviction notice on a Friday, then the first day will complete at the time you presented the notice to the tenant(s) on Monday, and the 3 day period will hence conclude on a Wednesday.
