We are filling out the 3 day notice.  In one space is the address to send the rent to.   Can a PO Box be used?  Prefer not to use our residential address.

I'm not familiar with the court system in CA or their forms, but I see no reason why rent can't be set to a PO Box.  However, you may have to put your actual home address on any eviction paperwork.  And normally any tenant can just look up the rental address in a county tax auditor site and see your home address.  Or look up your name on a municipal court site and look at any traffic ticket you have to get your address.  So there really isn't much chance to hide.

Unless the property is owned by a separate entity such as an LLC (which is a good idea anyway).

You can get a home address with it in an LLC too.  Just takes more than one step.  Find the principal agent from the secretary of state's site.  Look up the agent's name in white pages, municipal court records, or any one of a number of sites that give you home addresses.  With the world wide web, it is very hard to hide.

You could use an attorney as the principal agent if someone is that worried about it.
