The three day waste or nuisance eviction notice does not provide an opportunity for the tenant to cure. Examples of waste or nuisance include unreasonable damage to the property, consistently disturbing the peace and enjoyment of others, and drug use. Since waste or nuisance is often difficult to prove it is often a better strategy to serve another type of notice instead of the waste or nuisance eviction notice.
It is best to consult with an attorney before considering pursuing an eviction for nuisance.
