Legal Q&A: Must I serve an eviction notice on a business day?
Question: I have filed an eviction against one of my residents for failing to pay rent for the last two months. I served the notice on a Saturday, and someone said I had to serve it on a business day. Are they right?
Answer: No. A three-day notice for breach of the lease can be served on any day of the week. The tenant has three full days to comply, but the last day of the notice must end on a business day.
Question: I recently purchased a triplex, and the escrow will be closing in a couple of days. The tenants are currently on a month-to-month rental agreement. Do I have to wait until the end of the month or can I serve a 30-day notice as soon as I take possession of the property?
