When you are given a three day notice, are you supposed to pay legal fees before the expiration date of the notice? The only amount on the notice is what I owe.
You pay the amount of rent as shown on the 3 day notice, which allows you to remain in your apartment or house and not be evicted. As for legal fees for which you might liable for under the terms of your lease, you'll have to read your lease carefully. You may not be liable for any legal fees - it all depends on your Lease.
Just because I answer your question does not mean that I am your lawyer, or that you should take action based on my answer. I am not your lawyer. I can give you my best guess based on the facts as you present them in your question. Any questions that I ask in my response are rhetorical.
Unless such legal fees constitute rent under the lease, NO. Generally, there should be no such additional charges like that applied to the 3 day notice.

The Pay or Vacate Notice aka three day nonpayment notice is only supposed to include unpaid rent as the money amount dut. There may be other amounts due. Late charges, deposit money, legal fees, maintenance charges, etc., are other amounts that may be due. You should check your written lease agreement or other paperwork to see if there are other amounts that are currently due. If you are unsure, see a local landlord lawyer. Good luck!
