The Texas 3-day notice to quit for non-compliance is a letter used to inform a tenant that they are required to vacate the rental premises within three (3) days or face eviction (a forceable detainer). A landlord can issue the notice when a tenant has breached the lease agreement in some fashion. This can comprise a number of offenses, with common ones being unauthorized roommates or occupants, pets, smoking, damage to property, the harassment of neighbors, and illegal activity.

To prove that the notice was sent (and that the tenant received it), the landlord should utilize a type of mail service called “certified mail.” Like the name says, the shipping company “certifies” that the letter was successfully delivered, or that an attempt at delivery was made.
