How To Proceed With An Eviction For Nonpayment Of Rent
When a tenant has not paid their rent, they are in violation of their lease agreement and therefore can be given the Termination for Non-Payment of Rent notice by the landlord.
- Giving this notice is the first step in evicting a tenant that has not paid their rent. The entire process is as follows:
- Serve the notice to a tenant that has not paid their rent.
- Wait the 14-day compliance period for the tenant to vacate the property.
- If the tenant does not comply in this period then the landlord may file for a hearing in court.
- At the hearing, the court will make a ruling in the matter.
- If the ruling is in favor of the landlord then a date will be scheduled with the local authorities to forcibly remove the problem tenant.
The Period Of Notice
The landlord needs to wait at least 14 days after giving the notice for the tenant to comply with their demands and vacate the property. If the tenant does not comply and leave the property then the landlord may only take action after this 14 period has passed.
This period of notice begins when the tenant receives the notice. If the notice is hand-delivered to the tenant then the 14 day compliance period begins immediately. If the notice is sent by mail or left with another resident at the property then there will be up to 3 days added to this period of time to allow for the tenant to see the notice and act accordingly.
