A Commercial Three (3) Day Notice is the form used in order to evict a commercial tenant that has not paid rent. Under normal circumstances, three day notices cannot include any fees that are not actual rent (i.e., late fees, light bills, water bills, or interest). Please note however, that that does not apply to commercial three day notices, as they can (and often do) have all sorts of miscellaneous fees included above and beyond the base rent that is due. Please check your lease if you are a commercial Landlord. Furthermore, please note that if the Landlord’s address (for purposes of the notice) is in a separate county than where the Tenant’s notice is posted, or if the Landlord uses a P.O. Box for his or her address or if the notice is mailed to the Tenant, the Landlord must add five business days to the original three business days of the notice.
In order to fill out the form you will need the following information: Landlord’s name, address, phone number, Tenant’s name, address of the rental property, the monthly rental amount, the total amount owed, and the specific months owed. Please note that if a month is skipped (i.e., the tenant doesn’t pay January, but pays February) you must apply the payment to the month not paid. Thus, if a tenant does not pay January but does pay February’s rent, they would still owe February because the payment that was received has to be applied to January’s unpaid rent.
