three-day notice
A notice from a landlord to a tenant to pay delinquent rent within three days or quit (leave or vacate) the premises. State laws typically set specific rules for preparing and serving three-day notices. A landlord may file an eviction lawsuit for unpaid rent against a tenant who fails to pay or vacate within three days. While the three-day notice period is common, it does not apply in all states or in all circumstances, such as property covered by local rent control ordinances.

three-day notice
n.
   a notice to pay delinquent rent or quit (leave or vacate) the premises given by a landlord to a tenant, which in most states gives the tenant three days to pay or get out. Service of the notice and failure of the tenant to pay or vacate within three days provide the basis for a lawsuit for unlawful detainer (eviction) for unpaid rent and a court judgment ordering the tenant to leave. While the three-day notice period is common it does not apply in all states or in all circumstances, such as local rent control ordinances.
