The Eviction Process Basics
The Main Reasons To Start The Eviction Process
No payment of rent
This seems to be the most obvious and common reason, but there is still a dance that needs to be performed before an eviction can happen. A Pay or Quit Notice must be sent to the tenant, which starts your paper process. The amount of time it takes to evict from that first notice depends on the state. Check your local laws to start the process.
Violation of Lease Terms
Perhaps the tenants are using the property as dealing drugs, keeping pets or smoking in the
An Unconditional Quit Notice differs from a Cure or Quit Notice in that it does not give the tenant a chance to correct their actions or remedy the issue. This notice means: get out now. It could be issued if the tenant’s behavior could be in violation of the law or the source of immediate danger to other tenants Examples include drug or gang-related activity.
The tenant may not go quietly. He or she may decide to defend themselves in court, which could add a great deal of time to the process. This is why the property owner’s paperwork and paper trail must be detailed, organized, specific and correct. The tenant may claim that mistakes were made, or that the landlord had failed to deliver on certain promises specified in the lease. Advise your client to have all their ducks in a row when it comes to keeping records and covering their tracks.
If the suit is won by the landlord, a judgment for possession of the property and/or unpaid rent will be issued. Remember that this does not mean that the tenant and his possessions can be dumped on the sidewalk. Locking out or freezing out a tenant is illegal. In most states, there are removal and storage procedures to obey. In many cases, a local law enforcement officer (usually a sheriff or marshall) handles the physical aspects of the removal, at a cost to the landlord. Check your local laws.
