Notice Requirements for Lease Violations

A landlord can also evict a tenant for violating the lease or rental agreement. As soon as the landlord is aware of a lease violation, such as having a pet when none are allowed, then the landlord can give the tenant a three-day notice to perform or quit. This notice gives the tenant three days to come into compliance with the lease or rental agreement or move out of the rental unit. If the tenant does not correct the lease violation within the three days, then the landlord can file an eviction lawsuit with the court (see Cal. Code of Civ. Proc. § 1161(3)).

In some circumstances, such as tenant drug dealing, the landlord can give the tenant an unconditional three-day notice to quit which does not give the tenant the alternative of stopping his or her misbehavior.  Tenant Defenses to Evictions – Nolo Press

  1. If I get a notice to comply or quit and I move out, do I get a refund of the unused portion of my rent or do I have to give 30 days notice?
