How to Evict a Utah Tenant

Evicting a Tenant in Payson Utah

Are you wondering how to evict a Utah tenant?  The first thing you do is write a “Notice to Quit.” Utah has several types of eviction notices. One popular one is called a Notice to Quit; the proper one depends on the reason for the eviction and the type of tenancy involved. Each notice must state the reason for the notice, the name of the tenant, the name of the landlord, the address of the home, and instructions on what to do. Instructions like pay rent now or vacate the property.
