The Texas three (3) day notice to pay or quit, as stated in Sec. 24.005, must be served on a tenant who has failed to pay rent. The tenant is given three (3) days to either pay the past due amount, or move out of the rental property. Failure of the tenant to take action (pay the back rent, or move out) allows the landlord to legally file an eviction lawsuit in court. If the tenant does pay the past due amount (or moves out) within the three day notice period, the landlord cannot file an eviction action against them.
