For landlords and tenants, eviction can be an incredibly sensitive subject that causes a great deal of stress. On the one hand, a landlord may feel uneasy about telling a tenant that they have to leave, while a tenant who receives an eviction notice may be unsure of where they are going to live or how the eviction will affect their future. However, there are times when it becomes necessary to evict a tenant, for one reason or another. On this blog, we have discussed some of the reasons why eviction may become necessary, but it is also important to go over some of the advantages of eviction.
From a landlord’s perspective, evicting a nightmare tenant can provide an incredible sense of relief. More importantly, it can protect the property from damage, address recurring instances of a tenant’s failure to pay rent on time, and even avoid costly issues from arising down the road. In some instances, eviction may even have certain benefits for a tenant. For example, a tenant may feel as if they are stuck in life, but make progress after moving to a new location. Of course, this certainly does not always work out and some tenants have faced many challenges after an eviction, which is especially upsetting if the landlord unlawfully evicted them.
Regardless of the eviction-related questions you have or challenges you are facing, go over all of your legal options. Our landlord and tenant page has more information on the subject of evicting a tenant.
