Evictions are generally very simple. In fact, many tenants will vacate the premises after receiving the notice. However, occasionally the process gets out of hand when you have a tenant who refuses to leave, or a tenant who files a countersuit against you. We only represent landlords and creditors, we do not represent tenants. We understand the importance of cash flow. Thus, we work hard to move the process along as quickly as possible.
The first step is to serve the tenant with an eviction notice. This is essentially the method of letting the tenant know that the landlord is terminating the lease. If the tenant does not leave, the next step is to file a lawsuit. Luckily for landlords, evictions follow an expedited process. Typically, the eviction notice must only be given a few days before bringing the lawsuit. Most of the time, from the moment of serving the eviction notice you can expect to have an empty rental unit within two weeks, even if you have to file a lawsuit.
