New three day notice rules for the State of California go into effect September 1, 2009. Moving forward weekend and holidays may no longer be counted as a “day”. ReLISTO a residential and full property management service company for San Francisco has already incorporated this into our workflow to ensure our landlords stay compliant with the law and any notice provided is done so correctly. Below is the summary and recommendation from the San Francisco Apartment Association regarding this matter.
“Under a law taking effect September 1, 2019, weekends and court holidays will no longer count toward the three-day notice period and the five-day period for responding to an unlawful-detainer summons and complaint. For example, under the new law, the deadline to pay rent for a three-day notice served given on a Friday wouldn’t be due until Wednesday— two days later than the current Monday deadline.
Previously, weekends and court holidays could count toward these notice periods, although a notice could not expire on weekend or court holiday.
To ensure compliance with the new law, AB 2343
, SFAA recommends that the new method of counting should be used for three day notices served on or after August 29, 2019 and for complaints served on or after August 27, 2019.”
