An Oklahoma 5 Day Notice To Quit evicts a tenant for nonpayment of rent. In Oklahoma, a landlord can file this notice the day after rent is due, with no grace period for the tenant. The tenant must pay the past due balance or else move out within five (5) judicial days (i.e., not counting weekends and legal holidays).

An Oklahoma 15 Day Notice To Comply or Vacate demands correction of a lease violation that is “curable,” i.e., the tenant gets 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 tenant must take appropriate corrective action within ten (10) calendar days, or else move out within fifteen (15) calendar days.

An Oklahoma Immediate Notice To Vacate evicts a tenant for an “incurable” lease violation, i.e., one which the tenant is not allowed to restore through corrective action, like engaging in criminal activity on or near the premises. Tenants must move out immediately upon receiving this notice.

note
A landlord may choose to serve this notice on a day when the courthouse is open to begin eviction proceedings immediately, but this is not a legal requirement.

An Oklahoma 30 Day Notice To Vacate terminates a rental agreement, including a month-to-month or year-to-year lease as well as an expired lease or a situation with no written lease where the tenant pays rent monthly. The non-terminating party must receive notice at least thirty (30) days before the date of termination.

How To Write an Eviction Notice in Oklahoma

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 Oklahoma

The “clock” for an eviction notice period starts “ticking” 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.

In Oklahoma, notice periods under eleven (11) days only count judicial days, i.e., they do not count weekends and legal holidays.

How To Serve an Eviction Notice in Oklahoma

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

  1. Hand delivery to the other party
  2. Hand delivery to a family member of the tenant over age 12, who can accept the notice on behalf of the tenant, PLUS delivery by certified mail
  3. Posting at a conspicuous place on the premises, PLUS delivery by certified mail

Mailed notice extends the notice period by three (3) calendar days, to account for variable delivery times.
