Evictions can be incredibly overwhelming for landlords and tenants alike. Often, both parties feel stressed out or even uncertain of which steps to take during this process. Whether you are a landlord or are renting, it is crucial to make sure your legal rights are not trampled on. With landlord/tenant issues, there may be a number of details that could have an impact on the case, and each situation is unique. There are a myriad of reasons behind landlords' decisions to evict tenants, from unpaid rent to the expiration of a lease, and it is essential to be prepared.
If your tenant has fallen behind on rent, you may feel that the time has come to evict them. On the other hand, perhaps you recently lost your job and missed a recent payment and would like to discuss an eviction notice with your landlord. There are many other reasons why an eviction may come up, such as an expired lease, allegations of damage to the property, unlawful drug activity or the violation of a rental agreement. Regardless of the reason why you want to evict your tenant, or the reason behind your landlord's decision to evict you, it is imperative to go over all details closely.
In some instances, these issues can be resolved outside of the courtroom via communication, while others may necessitate legal action. On the landlord and tenant section of our law firm's site, you can read through more material on tenant eviction and topics related to this issue.
