In Wyoming, landlords are required to provide 3 days’ written notice to tenants prior to beginning an eviction action with the court.
Read further to learn about what information is required on an eviction notice for it to be valid, and legally acceptable ways of delivering notices.
Information Required for all Wyoming Eviction Notices
Under Wyoming law, a landlord must include the fact that the tenant is going to be evicted and needs to move out of the rental unit on the written notice.
While not directly spelled out in Wyoming state law, it could also be a good idea to include:
- The name and contact information of the landlord or the landlord’s agent/representative
- The name and contact information of the person being evicted
- The date and signature of the landlord or landlord’s agent
Acceptable Ways of Delivering Eviction Notices
According to Wyoming statutes, a landlord is allowed to “deliver” the written eviction notice to the tenant by:
- Giving it to the tenant in person
- Leaving it at the tenant’s workplace if the tenant isn’t at the rental unit/current address
Certified mail is not required under Wyoming law.
Types of Eviction Notices
Each possible ground for eviction has its own process and notice requirements.
Eviction Notice for Non-Compliance/ Nonpayment of Rent: 3-Day Notice to Quit
When a tenant has violated the terms of a rental agreement/lease for any reason (including nonpayment of rent and any other breach), a Wyoming landlord can give the tenant 3 days’ written notice stating that the tenant must move out.
This notice covers a variety of non-compliance issues, including:
- Nonpayment of rent after three days
- Health/safety issues
- Too many people living in the rental unit
- Violating the terms of the rental agreement
- Damaging/destroying rental property
- Preventing other tenants from peacefully enjoying the rental property
- Unreasonably refusing to allow the landlord to enter the rental unit to make repairs, inspect the unit, or show the unit
- Failing to move out when the lease term expires
If a landlord chooses to allow the tenant the option of remedying the issue (i.e. paying rent), then they can; however, this is not required to be included on the written notice.
If the reason for eviction was nonpayment of rent, and the tenant pays past-due rent (and any associated fees) in full prior to the eviction hearing, the eviction proceedings will be stopped.
