A North Dakota eviction notice is a document used when a landlord seeks to evict a tenant who has failed to abide by the terms of their lease agreement. No matter the nature of the breach, the landlord must provide at least three days’ notice to the tenant to rectify the breach or remove themselves from the premises. If the tenant fails to do either of those things, the landlord may prepare a summons and complaint in the Local District Court which services the area in which the property is located.

When is Rent Due

In North Dakota, rent is due as specified in the lease. If the tenant fails to pay the rent on time, the landlord may serve an eviction notice which would give the tenant three (3) days to pay the rent or face an eviction action.

How to Evict (Process)

Step 1 –  Before going to court to start an eviction process, the landlord must serve an eviction notice on the tenant. The eviction notice must allow three days to rectify the situation. If a landlord seeks to end a month-to-month tenancy, he or she must use a month-to-month form. In both cases, the tenant must be served personally (not by the landlord) or by mail, or by the sheriff. The landlord should retain proof of service because it will be needed in court during the eviction process. The notice forms are as follows:

Step 2 –  If the tenant fails to comply with the notice, the landlord may then proceed to the local district court (where the property is located) to file a Summons and Complaint (see All Eviction Forms and Instructions ). These will have to be served on the tenant also. Again, there will have to be proper service as set forth in Step 1.

Step 3 –  Once the tenant has been served, the landlord will need to gather a copy of the eviction notice, the summons and complaint and proof of service for both. In addition, the landlord will have to prepare Findings of Fact and Judgment. These will have to be filed with the court along with the requisite fee.

Step 4 –  The court will set a hearing date. If the tenant fails to attend and/or judgment is found in favor of the landlord, the court will issue a judgment, which will require the tenant to move out.

Step 5 –  If the tenant continues to remain on the premises, then the landlord will have to seek a Writ of Eviction in order to authorize the removal of the tenant by a sheriff.
