How to serve a 5-Day, 24-Day or 28-Day notice

An owner may serve the notice themselves, but not the summons. However, improper service of the notice is one of the more common causes of an owner losing an eviction.

There are four basic methods of giving notice to the tenant:

Personal: (a) By giving a copy of the notice personally to the tenant or by leaving a copy at the tenant's usual place of abode in the presence of some competent member of the tenant's family at least 14 years of age, who is informed of the contents of the notice;

Substitute: (b) By leaving a copy with any competent person apparently in charge of the rented premises or occupying the premises or a part thereof, and by mailing a copy by regular or other mail to the tenant's last-known address;

Certified: (c) If notice cannot be given under par. (a) or (b) with reasonable diligence, by affixing a copy of the notice in a conspicuous place on the rented premises where it can be conveniently read and by mailing a copy by regular or other mail to the tenant's last-known address;

Posted: (d) By mailing a copy of the notice by registered or certified mail to the tenant at the tenant's last-known address;

Tip: You can hire a professional process server to deliver the notice to the tenant. This saves you from potential confrontation and usually eliminates errors in service.
