How to Write an Eviction Notice in Idaho

For an eviction notice to be legally compliant:

  1. List tenants’ full names;
  2. List full address;
  3. Include grounds for eviction;
  4. Calculate and include termination date;
  5. Include date notice served;
  6. The landlord’s signature and printed name; and
  7. The landlord’s address and telephone number.

Without this information on the notice, a judge may not be able to proceed with an eviction proceeding and the landlord’s case may be dismissed.

How to Calculate Expiration Date in Idaho

Eviction notices take effect the day after they are served. All days are counted during the notice period. However, if the last day falls on a weekend or legal holiday, then the notice period will not officially expire until the end of the next judicial day (not counting weekends or legal holidays).
