The Utah 3-day notice to vacate for a nuisance is a notice served on a tenant who has caused a non-criminal nuisance communicating that they must vacate the premises within three (3) days or face an eviction suit. Examples of non-criminal nuisances are disturbing neighbors, smoking on the premises when it is forbidden, and excessive visitors and parties. Upon receiving this notice, the tenant is legally required to move out, remove all their belongings from the rental space, and leave behind any keys or key cards. There is no opportunity to remain on the premises beyond fighting an eviction case in court.
