What should I say in an eviction notice for a residential property?

I want the tenant out ASAP.

I would document in the notice the reasons you are evicting them, e.g. non-payment of the rent. It is important that you a) have a legitimate reason for eviction and b) make sure that the eviction notice is received by your tenant (for example, use certified mail or the like). I recommend consulting with a lawyer.

The main point to express is the lack of payment in rent. State the months the tenant have been behind and the amount owed...if this isn't about rent but about something else, like a noise complaint or destruction of property, then make sure to include that in the eviction notice.

Fortunately, I have not had to evict any of my tenants; however, if the times comes that I need to present an eviction notice to a tenant, then the notice would have to include the tenant and landlord names, the property address, the date, the detailed reasons for eviction and a phone number where the landlord can be reached.

You have to cite reasons why you want the tenant out. You also have to be sure that you do everything according to the laws of your state. Also be prepared for court in case your tenant will be prepared to fight and prolong their stay.
