The tenant must comply within 3 calendar days (including weekends and holidays) and resolve the violation or vacate the rented premises. Failure to comply with the notice will result in the tenant being served a Summons and Complaint for unlawful detainer.

If the court finds the tenant guilty of an unlawful detainer, the tenant may be responsible to pay for damages, attorney fees, and any unpaid dues. If the lease requires mediation, the tenant should file for mediation within 3 days and the process for mediation will take place within 7 days of the landlord receiving your written notification.
