A person "notifies" or "gives" a notice or notification to another by taking steps reasonably calculated to inform the other in ordinary course whether or not the other actually comes to know of it. In the case of the landlord, notice is received when it comes to the landlord's attention or when it is delivered in hand or mailed by certified mail or restricted certified mail, as defined in section 618.15, whether or not the landlord signs a receipt for the notice, to the place of business of the landlord through which the rental agreement was made or at a place held out by the landlord as the place for receipt of the communication or delivered to any individual who is designated as an agent of the landlord. In the case of the tenant, notice is received when it comes to the tenant's attention or when it is delivered in hand to the tenant or mailed by certified mail or restricted certified mail, as defined in section 618.15, whether or not the tenant signs a receipt for the notice, to such person at the place held out by such person as the place for receipt of the communication, or in the absence of such designation, to such person's last known place of residence.
Any notice required under this chapter, except a written notice of termination required by section 562A.27, subsection 1 or 2, a notice of termination and notice to quit under section 562A.27A, a notice to quit as required by section 648.3, or a petition for forcible entry and detainer pursuant to chapter 648, shall be deemed legally sufficient notice if made by posting at or delivering to the dwelling unit. The date of posting of the notice shall be written on the notice.
