California Eviction Notice Basics

Reviewed by Rocket Lawyer On Call Attorney C. Mario Jaramillo, Esq.
As a landlord, sometimes you have no choice but to evict a tenant. Giving your tenant an Eviction Notice (more formally known as Notice to Quit in California) is the first step in attempting to remove a tenant from a rental property. California law requires a landlord to give a tenant proper notice before the eviction process can begin. Use a California Eviction Notice if you want to begin the process of removing your tenant.

Use the California Eviction Notice document if:

  • Your tenant has failed to pay the rent.
  • Your tenant has violated any provision of the lease or rental agreement.
  • Your tenant materially damaged the property.
  • Your tenant is a nuisance or has caused trouble among other tenants.
  • Your tenant has used the property for illegal activity.
  • The landlord wishes to terminate a month-to-month tenancy.
