When should I send an eviction notice for non-payment of rent?

Eviction notices should be sent only after the tenant is actually late on rent, and after any grace periods that are set in the lease agreement. If, for instance, rent is “due” on the 1st, but not late until the 3rd, sending a notice to vacate on the 2nd is improper. In this case, you would want to send the notice on the 4th. 

Keep in mind that there is some lag between when you send a notice and when the tenant actually receives it through the mail. Because of this you should send the notice as soon as possible. Sending the eviction notice overnight can expedite this lag. Every day that you delay sending the notice is a day of rent that you may never get paid for.
