The Utah 3-day notice to vacate for a criminal act is notice delivered to a tenant who has committed a criminal act on the premises of a rental property communicating that they must vacate the property within three (3) business days or face an eviction suit. This notice does not provide a chance for the tenant to cure the breach of agreement; therefore, the tenant must gather their belongings, leave the key/key card with the landlord, and move out. A criminal act is any criminal activity that isn’t at the level of a criminal nuisance. It’s for the landlord to decide which notice to quit to deliver; however, both eviction notices provide the same timeframe in which to vacate.
