Legal Q&A: Tenant won’t pay rent until he gets 3-day notice
Question: I have a tenant who never pays his rent until he receives a three-day notice. We normally serve notices on the eighth of the month even though the rent is due on the first. He is on a one-year lease and I don’t know my legal rights.
