A California 3-day notice to quit for non-payment of rent is issued to tenants who have defaulted on rent payments, granting them a brief window to promptly rectify the overdue rent payment or vacate the premises. This enables landlords to follow appropriate legal procedures and take necessary actions in case of continued non-payment.
If the tenant fails to resolve the rent default within the defined period, the landlord may initiate eviction proceedings as per California’s legal requirements.
Governing Law — Calif. Civil Code § 1161(2).
Grace Period for Rent Payment — None (no statute).
