The Oregon three (3) day notice to pay or quit is served on a tenant by their landlord when they fail to pay rent on time. A notice to pay or quit comes in two forms: 3-day (72 hours) and 6-day (144 hours) notices. In regards to month-to-month tenancies, either form can be used. However, a 3-day notice can be given to a tenant only after eight (8) days have passed since the day rent was due (including the payment date). If the tenancy is week-to-week, the 3-day notice should be used but can be delivered five (5) days after the rent was due. At the end of the notice period, the landlord can file a Forcible Entry and Detainer if the tenant has neither paid nor vacated the premises.
