Tips for Property Managers: TENANT EVICTIONS Evictions are a necessary evil of owning properties





Here are some tips:

1) First, you must determine the reason(s) under your local and state laws for evicting the tenant, such as failure to pay rent, repeated violations or the breach of a lease clause, etc….
2) Once you have determined the reason(s), you must give the tenant adequate written notice that you are terminating his or her tenancy, and make sure you follow your state and local eviction procedures.
3) If the tenant does not move or correct violations after receiving a termination notice, your only recourse is to file a lawsuit to evict the tenant. If you decide you can evict and want to move forward, get very familiar with the Landlord and Tenant Act which explains the legal process for evicting a tenant. To win your case, you’ll need to follow the eviction procedure to the letter. If you skip a step, the judge may decide in the tenant’s favor and the tenant may have the right to sue you in civil court. You can get a copy of the Landlord and Tenant Act from your state attorney general’s website. If your state does not post these acts online, get a printed version at a local court office or through a lawyer.See More
