Three Day Notice to Vacate to a Tenant Without a Lease in California

In every state there are certain requirements as to how many days' notice a landlord must give a tenant when they wish to evict them. In California there are a few exceptions that allow for less than a thirty day notice. If a tenant is behind on rent, has caused massive amounts of damage to the property, or if they have stalked another tenant, these can all be grounds in the state of California to issue a three-day eviction notice.
To do so, the landlord must put it down in writing. The best way to deliver this is by hand, if possible, but if it's mailed there must be either a verbal statement made to someone else living on the premise or a copy posted in an obvious place where the tenant will see it. The three-day count starts after these steps have been taken and if the third day falls on a weekend or holiday, it is pushed back another day.
The landlord may provide alternatives to eviction, of course, such as paying what is owed plus the fees or fixing damage that was done to the property. Not all issues have remedies that can be made, but it can be helpful to both parties if there are. If a tenant feels they should not be evicted and will not leave, the landlord will need to go to court to evict them.
