Does a 3-day notice violate tenants' rights?

How many days are they legally required to give you?


Answer by  Dean (4035)

Every state has laws regarding eviction, including the notice given. A landlord can include language in a lease about the many causes a tenant can be evicted, and might also include details of the of notice to be given. There is no standard number of days regarding a notice to quit the premises.

It depends on a few things, like your rental agreement. If they said that they'd only give you 3 days notice, then they're allowed to. Usually you are supposed to get 30 days though.

Yes. If you are being evicted due to the property's sale or owner bankruptcy, you must have at least 30 days notice, more depending on your state. If evicted for non-payment of rent, the eviction period depends on your state but is typically 30 days or more. Three days is too short.

I think in most states you are given a 30 day notice. I would imagine that that did violate your rights.


Answer by  Mary (2095)

A 3 day eviction is allowed when a tenant has violated the lease, which can include not paying rent on time.


Answer by  barkley (951)

Whether or not a 3-day notice violates the rights of the tenant is dependent on the specific lease agreement or other that was signed, the state you live in, and the rationale for the 3 day notice -I am assuming you are referring to notice of eviction proceedings. Check the wording in your lease or rental agreement.

Yes. A notice of only three days violates your tenants rights and you could get in trouble for that. Legally you have to give a tenant a THIRTY day notice if you are evicting them or for some reason need them out. If you are evicting you have to go through the legal eviction process.
