A 3-Day Notice to Perform Covenant is used to give the tenant who is on a written rental agreement or in the middle of a lease for years notice that they have breached their contract in some manner and that breach needs to be cured. This kind of notice can be used for many different kinds of breaches.
In general, this notice should be used when the breach by the tenant can be cured. For example, the tenant has a dog or other pet that the written agreement prohibits or is not allowed. In this case, if the tenants gets rid of or removes the pet from the rental property within 3-days, then they have cured the breach.
This notice can be used to ask for late fees as long as there is a clause in the written agreement which can be sited. This notice can also be used for a non-paid security deposit, an unauthorized pet, or a utility payment which is due. As long as there is a clause in the agreement which can be cited, this notice can be used to give the tenant notice of the breach in contract and how the tenant needs to cure the breach. The tenant is supposed to comply with the notice within 3 days, or legal action may be taken. (3-Day Notice to Perform Covenant)
