I Was Given a 5 Day Demand Letter for Eviction?

Generally 5 days is 5 days from the date on the letter. The letter cannot be sent before the 16th day of the month or it is legally defective. Lastly, if this is your first 5 day letter, you have the right to pay all the rent due and get caught up – avoiding an eviction. If you are evicted and the landlord obtains a judgment against you, you may want to consider bankruptcy relief as an option. Good luck.
