I'm filling out my 3 day notice in Colorado but I'm not sure how to fill this part:
The covenant/condition with which you are to comply is (check one or both, as applicable)
The payment to the landlord in the sum of $______________ being past due rent and owed to the landlord from _____________, 20 _________, to _____________20__________.
If on the lease agreement said rent due on the 3rd then I should type : from 3rd to 7th ( the date I plan to serve to the tenant) and do I need to include the late fee up to the date i serve the notice or I just need to put the : sum of (the monthly rent)?
Thank you so much for your help!
Hi Niki, I would put the late fee on the notice. Hope this helps!
You put the amount of the monthly rent and October 1, 2017 to October 31, 2017 for the dates, assuming your rent is for each calendar month. If its really from Oct 3 to Nov 2, put those dates. Its whatever period the rent covers. My lease says rent is due on the 1st, late after the 4th, so I'd put the 1st to the end of the month.

Be SURE to separate the actual rent from late fees. Just be impeccably precise with your numbers, your dates, and have all receipts in court. "Consider" a compromise or offer if contested.
thanks so much for all the great info. I download this form from state website and it didnt have any place to put the late fee.
Here is California you cannot include the late fees in with the notice. Nor can youevict for late fee so to avoid that we structure it differently. It has to be on a separate 3 day to perform conditions or quit notice. Bring that the late fee non payment is a breach of your lease. The way that our lease is structured is: rent is applied to the following outstanding items in the following order 1. Outstanding late charges and nsf charges
2. Outstanding repair bills
3. Outstanding balance owed on security deposit
4. Outstanding legal fees and/or court costs legally chargeable to tenant
5. Outstanding utility bills
6. To rent .... this way I can apply all the money submitted to those fees and balances and send a 3 day pay or quit for rent! Hope this helps!
Also the dates will be from 10/1/2017-10/31/2017 as that is the entire month hat you are requesting the money for.
