8
who appeared at the trial of the above-entitled action, hereby requests that the court issue a statement

9 of decision explaining the factual and legal bases for its decision regarding the following

10 controverted issues:
11
1. LIST HERE THE CONTROVERTD ISSUE SUCH AS whether or not the
12
complaint fails to state a cause of action for unlawful detainer on the grounds that the defective three-
13
day notice served on Defendant and attached to the complaint will not support an unlawful detainer
14

15 action as it fails to state a cause of action for unlawful detainer as it USE THE FIRST EXAMPLE

16 BELOW IF THE THREE-DAY IS A NOTICE TO PAY RENT OR QUIT THAT IS
17
DEFECTIVE IN SOME WAY
18
does not contain the information required by Code of Civil Procedure § 1161(2), and that the three-
19
day notice overstates the amount of rent due as it requests a late charge of $___, thus it is fatally
20

21 defective and will not support an unlawful detainer action.

22 USE THE SECOND EXAMPLE BELOW IF THE THREE-DAY IS A NOTICE TO
23
PERFORM COVENANT OR QUIT THAT IS DEFECTIVE IN SOME WAY
24
the three-day notice does not contain the information required by Code of Civil Procedure §
25
1161[c](3) as it fails to describe with specificity the particular conditions or covenants alleged to have
26

27 been violated, thus it is fatally defective and will not support an unlawful detainer action.
