Notice to Tenant I am in default on my lease payment for rental property.

Notice to Tenant
I am in default on my lease payment for rental property. Because this is a lease, not a month to month tenancy, does my landlord only have to give me a 3 day notice to pay rent or quit? Is a 30 day notice to vacate also required? I was laid off from my job of 3 years. I have been a model tenant..prior to this point. I just received an unlawful detainer-eviction summons.

    You have five (5) days, more or less, to file a Motion to Quash, a Demurrer, or an Answer. Consult with a knowledgeable attorney IMMEDIATELY!! You should be able to get an office consultation for $100 to $200.

    Thanks for sharing your interesting inquiry.

    There is no 30 day notice required when the reason for eviction is non-payment of rent. You should try to negotiate with the landloard, but unless there are serious problems with the building, they are within their rights.
