We received a 5 day pay or vacate notice last Monday. We will have funds by this coming Monday to pay in full. However the landlord insists that the 5th day is Saturday at midnight and referenced some residential legal case. Our lease spells out a ‘day’ being a day banks are open, which isn’t a weekend.
What do we do? He is planning to serve us eviction papers on Monday am based upon advice of his attourney.
For that type of notice 5 days means 5 actual days. Talk to the landlord to see if you can work something out.
