Utah 3 Day Notice To Quit
A Utah 3 Day Notice To Quit evicts a tenant for nonpayment of rent. In Utah, a landlord can file this notice the day after rent is due, with no grace period for the tenant. The tenant must pay all past due rent or else move out within three (3) judicial days (i.e., not counting weekends or legal holidays).
Utah 3 Day Notice To Comply or Vacate
A Utah 3 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. Tenants must take appropriate corrective action or move out within three (3) calendar days.
Utah 3 Day Notice To Vacate
A Utah 3 Day Notice To Vacate evicts tenants for substantial property damage, violent threats, criminal actions, or the possession or distribution of a controlled substance. Tenants are not allowed corrective action, and must move out within three (3) calendar days.
Utah 3 Day Notice of Termination
A Utah 3 Day Notice of Termination evicts tenants for causing physical harm to the premises, committing a health and safety violation, or assigning / subletting without the landlord’s consent. Tenants are not allowed corrective action, and must move out within three (3) calendar days.
Utah 15 Day Notice To Vacate
A Utah 15 Day Notice To Vacate terminates a periodic tenancy (e.g. month-to-month) or a fixed term lease. The non-terminating party must receive notice at least at least fifteen (15) calendar days before the date of termination.
How To Write an Eviction Notice in Utah
To help ensure the legal compliance of an eviction notice:
- Use the tenant’s full name and address
- Specify the lease violation as well as any balance due
- Specify the date of termination
- Print name and sign the notice, including the landlord’s address of record
- 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 Utah
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 Utah, when an eviction notice is served for nonpayment of rent, only judicial days are counted during the notice period.
How To Serve an Eviction Notice in Utah
Utah landlords may deliver an eviction notice using any of these methods:
- Hand delivery to the other party
- Hand delivery to a person of suitable age who can accept the notice on behalf of the other party, if the other party is unavailable
- Posting at a conspicuous place on the property, if there is no one of suitable age to accept the notice on behalf of the other party
- Delivery by registered or certified mail
Mailed notice begins the notice period as of the time of mailing.
