Evicting A Tenant

The first step in evicting a tenant is normally out of the hands of the landlord. The tenant must first violate the lease agreement for the process to begin. This violation can be big or small and is often specific to the particular agreement that was established between the landlord and the tenant.

Once a tenant has violated the agreement, the landlord can proceed by following these steps:

  • Provide notice to the tenant to either comply or vacate the property. In some cases, the tenant is only asked to leave and is not given the chance to cure the violation.
  • The landlord must wait the prescribed amount of time for the tenant to meet their demands.
  • If the tenant has not complied with the notice, then the landlord may file in court to formally evict the tenant.
  • If the court rules in favor of the landlord then an eviction date will be scheduled with the local authorities to forcibly remove the tenants from the property.

If the landlord follows all of the appropriate legal processes, then the court will be able to easily rule in favor of the landlord. If the landlord uses unconventional techniques or methods of persuading the tenants then the ruling may take more time or may be inconclusive.
