I rent a mobile home and rent the lot it is on. I am behind on rent payment. What can happen?
Your landlord can give you a written 3-Day Notice to Pay Rent or Vacate. The notice can be mailed, hand-delivered, or posted on or near your mobile home. The three days cannot include weekends or holidays when the court closes.
If you do not pay the rent within the three days or vacate the home, the landlord can terminate your rental agreement and file an eviction lawsuit against you. An eviction is the legal process to remove you from the home.
If you pay the rent as required in the notice, the landlord is not supposed to file an eviction against you. The landlord must accept your rent if you try to fully pay it within the three days.
