Under CCP 1161(2), a three-day notice to quit may require payment by mail only or it may, at the landlord’s choice, allow payment in person if it states the receiving person’s telephone number and hours he or she is open to receive rent. Since the landlord chose to permit payment in person or by mail, holidays and weekends counted towards the three days—they don’t if only payment by mail is permitted. Here, sufficient days elapsed after service and before the suit was filed to allow the defendant the full notice period. So judgment for defendant was reversed.
