A North Dakota 3 Day Notice To Comply or Vacate demands correction of a lease violation that is “curable,” i.e., the tenant may get a chance to fix the situation rather than be evicted. A curable lease violation might include failure to maintain health and safety on the rental property, interfering with the quiet enjoyment of neighbors, or refusal to allow lawful entry by the landlord.

The landlord decides whether the tenant gets an opportunity to cure the issue. If the landlord decides against it, or the tenant fails to take appropriate corrective action, the tenant must move out within three (3) calendar days.

A North Dakota 30 Day Notice To Vacate terminates a periodic tenancy (e.g., week-to-week or month-to-month) or a fixed-term rental agreement, as well as an expired lease or a situation with no written lease. The non-terminating party must receive notice at least thirty (30) calendar days before the date of termination.

How To Write an Eviction Notice in North Dakota

To help ensure the legal compliance of an eviction notice:

  1. Use the tenant’s full name and address
  2. Specify the lease violation as well as any balance due
  3. Specify the date of termination
  4. Print name and sign the notice, including the landlord’s address of record
  5. Note the date and method of notice delivery, along with printed name and signature

It is easy to lose an otherwise justified legal action because of improper notice. Check carefully to ensure enough time after notice is delivered, not when it’s sent.

How To Calculate Expiration Date in North Dakota

The clock for an eviction notice period starts the day after the notice gets delivered (served). For example, to give at least 30 days of notice and begin court action as of June 30th, delivery of the eviction notice must be no later than May 31st. 

In most jurisdictions, if the last day of a notice period is a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the notice period continues to run until the end of the next day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday. This is called the “next judicial day;” in other words, the next day a courthouse is open.

How To Serve an Eviction Notice in North Dakota

North Dakota landlords may deliver an eviction notice using any of these methods:

  1. Hand delivery to the other party
  2. Hand delivery to a person at least age 14 who can accept the notice on behalf of the tenant, PLUS delivery by certified mail
  3. Posting at the premises in a conspicuous location, PLUS delivery by certified mail (only allowed if at least one attempt at personal delivery between 6pm-10pm has failed)

Notice periods begin either when the tenant personally receives the notice, whether it’s mailed or hand-delivered.
