To evict a tenant successfully in Idaho you must present them with the appropriate eviction notice for the circumstances. This allows you to conform with the laws in Idaho by providing a legally valid reason for the eviction and the correct amount of notice necessary under ID statutes.
Choosing the right kind of eviction notice is key to removing a tenant quickly. If you don’t follow the legally mandated rules, you may have the eviction overturned or delayed by the local courts.
As seen below, there are a few different options in Idaho when completing an eviction.
3-Day Notice to Quit (Non-Payment)
This type of ID eviction notice gives tenants 3 days to pay the rent or leave the property if they fail to pay within the contractually agreed time. If the tenant still doesn’t pay or vacate after the notice period ends, the landlord can take them to court.
3-Day Notice to Quit (Non-Compliance)
If a tenant fails to comply with the terms of the lease, aside from not paying rent, landlords may issue them with a 3-Day Notice to Quit. This gives them 72 hours to correct the issue or leave the property.
Assuming the tenant corrects the violation, the notice will be rendered invalid. A new eviction warning will need to be issued if other breaches of the contract occur.
However, it’s also possible to issue an unconditional 3-Day Notice that doesn’t give the tenant a chance to correct the violation. This only normally happens when more severe transgressions take place.
30-Day Notice to Quit (Month-to-Month)
When a landlord wants to end a tenancy that is paid for on a flexible monthly basis, they must provide 30 days’ notice of their intention to terminate the agreement. This is an unconditional order with no right to cure.
