Eviction / Unlawful Detainer

Eviction/Unlawful Detainer is a legal process by which a landlord may terminate a tenant’s right to remain on the rental property. Ultimately, the tenant may be forcibly removed from the property by the sheriff or other law enforcement official; however, doing so requires a formal court order.A tenant can be evicted for numerous reasons, but typically evictions take place where the tenant is in violation of one or more provisions of the lease agreement. Valid reasons for eviction may include:

  1. Failure to pay rent on time
  2. Harboring pets or persons not authorized to reside at the premises under the lease
  3. llegal or criminal activity taking place within the rental premises
