Next, you’re going to serve the Notice. Hiring a process server will make it easy but if you want to do it yourself, go to the property and knock on the door. If the tenant is home, hand-deliver the Three Day Notice and ask them to read it, then walk away. If someone other than the tenant answers, you need to make sure it’s a person who is over 18 and mentally capable. If the person seems capable of accepting the Notice, get the individual’s name and age and as much information as possible on this person. Document who received the Notice at the property. If no one answers, tape the Notice on the front door. You then need to mail a copy of the Notice to the tenant. We recommend you do it via certified mail with a return receipt. This is not legally required but again, the documentation helps. Fill out a proof of service. Once you have all that, if the tenant still doesn’t pay the overdue rent, go to court and start the Unlawful Detainer Process.
