The Los Angeles Municipal Code requires that any Three Day Notice to Perform or Quit based upon a breach in the rental agreement must include the names of witnesses to the breach and the date and time such violation was witnessed. This requirement is in addition to the requirements set forth Code of Civil Procedure Section 1161(3).
Three Day Notices to Perform or Quit can be served on a tenant if a tenant has materially breached the provisions in the rental agreement or lease. It is important to note that although Code of Civil Procedure Section 1161(3) does not require the breach in the rental agreement to be “material” or important, most courts believe that the breach must be material for there to be an eviction based upon a breach of the lease or rental agreement.
If you are a landlord looking to serve a tenant a three day notice to perform or quit, please contact Attorney Anthony Marinaccio at 818-839-5220 for more information.
