- All notice postings include:

Types of Notices
- 7-Day Pay-or-Quit
- This notice is used for non-payment of rent from a tenant. It instructs the tenant to either pay rent or move-out. It can be posted the day after rent was due and not received. But, if there is a grace period, we must wait until after the grace period ends to serve. All eviction notices must be served by a sheriff, constable, or licensed process server! Therefore, the landlord and/or Property Manager may no longer serve these notices.
- 3-Day Nuisance
- This notice is used for instructing tenants to correct an issue such as: nuisance, waste, improper assignment or sublet, unlawful business, or illegal drug use. If the issue is not corrected, we must follow up with a 5-Day Notice to Quit for Unlawful Detainer.
- 30-Day No Cause
- This notice is used to instruct a tenant to move-out in 30 days. This can only be served at the end of a lease agreement or if there is no lease. If the tenant does not move-out after 30-days, we must follow up with a 5-Day Notice to Quit for Unlawful Detainer.
- 5-Day Tenancy-at-Will
- This notice is used to instruct a tenant to move-out within 5 days. This is only used if the homeowner has given permission to someone to stay at the home for an indefinitely amount of time with no periodic rent paid or reserved.
- 5-Day Lease Violation
- This notice is used for instructing tenants to correct a lease violation or move-out. If the issue is not corrected, we must follow up with a 5-Day Notice to Quit for Unlawful Detainer.
- 5-Day Notice to Quit for Unlawful Detainer
- This notice is used to follow up the 3-Day Nuisance, 30-Day No Cause, 5-Day Tenancy-at-Will, and 5-Day Lease Violation notices.
- Eviction filing includes:
- Filing a Complaint for Summary Eviction and all corresponding documentation with the courts
- What to Expect
- An eviction can be filed after a 7-Day Pay-or-Quit notice has expired and rent has still not been received. If the tenant has not filed an answer to the 7-Day Pay-or-Quit with the courts, the judge will review all corresponding paperwork and either approve or deny the summary eviction. If the tenant has filed an answer to the 7-Day Pay-or-Quit notice with the courts, a court appearance is likely. After the eviction is approved, the next step is the Constable Lockout Instructions.
- Court appearances are often necessary if the tenant files an answer with the courts. We will go to court for you. If the tenant suggests that the home is uninhabitable, the judge often requests an inspection of the property be performed and to report back to court at a later date.
- Setting up an appointment with the tenant
- Viewing the property thoroughly
- Taking pictures and/or video evidence
Constable Lockout Instructions
- Dropping off the instruction and check to the constable’s office
- What to Expect:
- The business day after the constable instructions are dropped off, the constable with post a 24-Hour notice. Once that 24-Hours is over, the next step is the lockout.
