Dear Mrs. Tenant,
You are hereby given an eviction notice and notice to vacate the premises on or before DATE, the premise owned by YOUR NAME in the city of XXX, California.
The reason for this eviction notice is:

You are hereby notified that if you make all outstanding payments before the date of eviction, you will be able to remain in the premises as long as you continue to pay your rent.
