Connecticut 3 Day Notice to Quit | NonPayment & NonCompliance

The Connecticut three (3) day notice to quit, in accordance with Section 47a-23, is a form that’s used by landlords to inform tenants of a termination to the lease/rental agreement. Most forms of tenancies require a three-day notice period (however month-to-month and week-to-week tenancies have different requirements).

How to Write

Step 1 – In the “To:” section near the top of the form, enter the full names of the tenant(s) and any other full-time occupants.

Note: If you do not know the names of other occupants, “John/Jane Doe” may be used.

Step 2 – Under the “Address of premises” section, enter the full address of the rental unit (including building-specific designations such as lot/floor/room numbers, etc.).

Step 3 – Enter the date that the three-day period will end. This is the date that the tenant will need to move out by. In the large blank section of the form, provide specific reasons as to why the lease/rental agreement is being terminated (it’s important to be as specific as possible when filling this part out, because these reasons will be used as evidence if an eviction lawsuit action is filed).

Step 4 – Print your name next to the “Name of Landlord” field. A signature of the landlord or attorney is also required (to the right of the “Signed” field). Enter location (town/county) and date.

Step 5 – Make several copies of the notice, and then give the original to the State Marshall (in Connecticut, these notices must be delivered by a State Marshall/Officer). The “Return of Service” section will be completed by the Marshall/Officer.
