South Dakota 3 Day Notice To Quit is a letter which complies with state legal requirements to begin eviction against a tenant for nonpayment of rent. The tenant must pay the balance due or move out within three (3) judicial days (i.e., not counting weekends or legal holidays) of receiving notice.

When To Use a South Dakota 3 Day Notice To Quit

A South Carolina 3 Day Notice To Quit begins the eviction process when the tenant is late on rent. A landlord may deliver this notice when any portion of the rent remains unpaid, beginning the day after it’s normally due.

Some types of South Dakota lease termination notice may allow different reasons for termination, or different notice periods. This may also apply to an eviction notice issued because of a lease or legal violation.

How To Write a South Dakota 3 Day Notice To Quit

To help ensure the legal compliance of a Notice To Quit:

  1. Use the full name of the receiving party, and address of record, if known
  2. Specify the termination date of the lease or tenancy
  3. Specify the basis for terminating the tenancy, and payment required to avoid termination
  4. Fill in the full address of the rental premises
  5. Provide updated/current address and phone number information
  6. Print name and sign the notice
  7. Complete the certificate of service by indicating 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 Serve a South Dakota 3 Day Notice To Quit

South Dakota landlords may deliver a Notice To Quit using any of these methods:

  1. Hand delivery to the other party
  2. ONLY after two (2) attempts at hand delivery, at least six (6) hours apart, fail: Posting at a conspicuous place on the premises, PLUS delivery by first-class mail with a certificate of mailing, PLUS (if possible) leaving the notice with a person residing at the premises

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

note
In almost all cases, notice is legally served when it is received by the other party, NOT when it’s sent. Check specified date of termination carefully to ensure compliance with the legal requirements for a notice period.
