Thank you for using JustAnswer. I'm sorry to hear about your situation. The only time that you can have a "3 Day Notice to Quit" is in certain situations. See California Code of Civil Procedure 1161(4). 1161 lists all the situations where a three day notice to pay or quit / three day notice to perform covenants or quit / three day notice to quit can apply. 3-Day Notice to Quit: This kind of notice is used if there have been ongoing problems with a tenant who:Causes or allows a "nuisance
" on the property;Uses the property to do something illegal (like sell drugs);Threatens the health and safety of other tenants or the general public; Commits waste (damage) that lowers the value of the property significantly;Moves in other tenants (subtenants) without the landlord's permission.The notice must:Be in writing;Say the full name of the tenant or tenants;Have the address of the rental property
;State the details and dates of each incident that created a nuisance, waste (damage), or illegal activity, or the subletting
of the propety to others; andSay clearly that the tenant has to move out within 3 days.So in short, the proper form to use would be a 3 day notice to perform covenants (promises) or quit, as a simple 3 day notice to quit would not suffice. I know this is probably not what you wanted to hear, but it is the law. I hope that clears things up anyway. If you have any other questions, please let me know.
