|Notice to Pay Rent or Quit - Demand for Payment|
State Specific Lease Inserts
The tenant will Pay the Rent, OR BE EVICTED.
The Notice to Pay Rent or Quit is a form notice used to demand the rent payment that is overdue and payable. You are legally informing the tenant with this form that you're about to begin eviction proceedings against him if the default is not cured within a set amount of days.
This notice is often called a 3 Day Notice, and is also used to give 5 day notice, 10 days or more depending on local landlord tenant eviction codes.
The Notice to Pay Rent or Quit usually is enough to jolt a late tenant into paying the rent- (if he is able to). Many tenants will immediately call you and try to make payment arrangements to bring their rent current. That's great. Be sure to the make them sign a Promise to Pay form agreeing to the terms you'll allow until the rent is up to date. They will understand that if they default on the Promise to Pay, the eviction will immediately commence. The Urgent Late Notice can be used for the same purpose. Use whichever you and your attorney are most comfortable with.
This notice warns the tenants that their credit is also at risk. Hopefully, you have tenants who value their credit. This form should be legally served to the tenant, mailed certified and regular mail.
