A Texas 3-day notice to quit for non-compliance is a formal document notifying tenants of their violation of the terms of their rental agreement. Landlords issue it for reasons unrelated to nonpayment of rent. After three days of receiving the notice, a tenant must correct the offense or leave the premises.
A landlord can serve this notice in person to any tenant living on the property if the tenant is at least 16 years old. They can also post the notice to the property’s main entry door, but the most secure method is certified mail, which ensures prompt delivery and offers proof if disputes arise later.
Governing Law — TX Property Code § 24.005.
Notice Types — In Texas, landlords may issue one of two types of notices:
- Curable: Curable notices contain remediable offenses, like having an unauthorized roommate or pet.
- Noncurable: Noncurable notices contain violations the landlord deems the tenant can’t cure, like harassment or illegal activity.
