Connecticut 3-day notice to quit, also known as court form JD-HM-7, is a letter used when the tenant fails to pay rent on time and/or fails to comply with terms of the rental agreement. In the State of Connecticut, a tenant has 9 days to pay their late rent. If the tenant fails to pay within 9 days, the landlord can serve a non-curable 3-day notice to quit and the tenant must move out within 3 days of notice. Failure to move out within 3 days will allow the landlord to file an action in the county where the property resides.
