When a tenant refuses to move

As a landlord, renting to tenants can be tough for a host of reasons. Even when everything goes smoothly, landlords may face various stressors and challenges. Unfortunately, some landlords encounter difficult tenants who may fail to abide by the terms of a rental agreement or make life challenging for landlords in other ways. For example, a tenant may refuse to move out of a home or apartment even though they are no longer allowed to stay there. When this happens, it is imperative for landlords to review their options and figure out the best course of action.

Tenants may be asked to move for different reasons. For example, a lease may be up and the landlord may have other plans for their rental. Or, perhaps a tenant has been issued an eviction notice due to failing to pay rent or violating the terms of a lease in some other manner. Landlords should be aware of their rights and they should also avoid any activity that could land them in hot water, such as attempting to forcibly remove a tenant on their own. If you have a tenant who is supposed to leave and they are refusing to do so, it is imperative to have a comprehensive understanding of your legal rights and some of the options that may be on the table.

This occurs more often than many people realize, and there are different reasons why a tenant may refuse to move. Please explore our blog to read more about legal issues related to evicting a tenant.
