The Idaho 3-day notice to quit for non-payment is used by a landlord to notify a tenant that they are in default of their rent payment and must pay the overdue rent or vacate the property. Failure to pay rent is one of the most common causes for filing an unlawful detainer action (eviction suit) against a tenant. However, by law, the tenant must be given three (3) days to make their rent payment before the landlord starts the eviction process. If they pay before the three-day notice period has ended, the lease agreement between the parties cannot terminate.
Laws – § 6-303(2)
Idaho 3-Day Notice Affidavit of Service – This affidavit must be downloaded and completed after the tenant has received the notice to quit for non-payment. The affidavit must be signed before a notary public once service is complete. If the tenant does not pay rent within the three-day notice period, the landlord may file an unlawful detainer action and will need to attach the affidavit to their complaint form.
