California 30 Day Notice To Quit is a notice to evacuate the rented property within the allocated notice period. This 30 Day Notice To Quit is pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1946. The landlord or the authorized agent of the landlord is in capability to serve the notice to the tenant.
Both the landlord and the authorized agent are authorized to take possession of the property from the tenant within or on the thirtieth day of serving the notice to the tenant. However, state law allows former tenants reclaiming abandoned personal property under certain rules and operating directives. The institution of legal proceedings is possible upon inability to vacate the said property within or on the thirtieth day of serving the notice. The notice addresses the tenant as well as all others in the possession of the property to evacuate the same as demanded in the notice.
