A three days notice, is exactly the time that you have either to clarify the terms with your Landlord or get out of the property. It is not worthy, to go through all the legal process that eviction can cause, because it will reflect in your credit history and will affect your ability to rent or buy in the future.

Good Luck,

If the landlord is not in fault, it is your chance to leave as soon as you get the 3 days notice and avoid the legal process. But if you believe that you have a case, you should not leave and fight for your rights. You can stay until you get the court decision.
No matter what, you should pay your rent. No excuse for not paying the rent. If the landlord is not repairing the unit you can sue him, but still pay the rent.
Eviction on your credit report will lessen your chances to rent anywhere else.

Legally? or ethically? You're supposed to pay rent to live in the property. That's your exchange for staying there., Not paying your rent is unethical and wrong. Treat your landlord as you would like to be treated. If youre not paying, and he has indicated that you should leave, then arrange to leave. Or start paying your rent again. I believe the notice said three days, right?
Best wishes.

The 3-day notice requires that you perform the act required in the notice by 1159pm on the third day of the notice failing which gives the landlord the right to go to court to file an unlawful detainer action against you. It is best to try to negotiate a settlement with the landlord instead of fighting an eviction and lose. If an unlawful detainer is filed, even if it is dismissed at some point, it may appear on your credit report and that could affect your ability to rent in the future.

If you stay past the 3 days, the landlord can file an Unlawful Detainer and move to evict you ASAP. This is NOT GOOD. Not only will you find yourself locked out and dealing with the Sheriff, but it will be reported on your Credit Report. Even worse than that, it will likely be reported to "Tenant Tracker" which is sort of like a Credit Bureau for people who rent. An eviction on your Credit or Tenant Tracker file will make it nearly impossible to rent anywhere, even with a co-signer in the future.

Can you work something out with your landlord such as paying 50% of the rent due now and a little extra each week. Most landlords want to find a way to work it out.

Best of luck,

if you have gotten a three day notice to pay or quit and tou stay past the third day, the landlord can start the eviction. This will cost you the price the lawyer charges which is $575 (our lawyer) and will come from your security deposit. You also run the risk of it going on your credit so if you are buying it's not a good thing.
Hope this is what you are asking about.
