Sample Eviction Notice

What Does a 30-day Notice of Eviction look like?

Example Eviction Notice

This eviction form is based on California law and used in an area that has neither eviction nor rent controls. In most other areas, you do not need to give a “good faith” reason for the eviction. Check with a local lawyer if you are not sure whether you’re in an area with special rules.

This form is usually not used after a foreclosure auction, although it may be. You’re more like to see a 3-day notice (Notice to Vacate.)


(rental premises address)

This NOTICE is intended as a 30 days day legal notice for the purpose of terminating your tenancy in accordance with California Civil Code Sections 1946 1946.1.

This NOTICE OF TERMINATION is served upon you because the landlord seeks in good faith to recover possession of the rental unit for use and occupancy by the landlord or the landlord’s spouse, children, parents, grandparents or grandchildren. The date, place, witnesses, and circumstances concerning the above are as follows:
