If you are renting a house, apartment or rooms and you have had some problems with your tenant, and then you have the right to evict them. But you can’t evict these people if you don’t follow the eviction law. First, you will need to legally terminate their tenancy. If they still won’t budge, then you can file a lawsuit to evict them otherwise known as unlawful detainer or UD lawsuit.
These processes can vary from state laws or the laws of your country. But most commonly, you need to send them a notice first. These may vary from the different situations and a different set of rules may apply. Each state or country has their own procedures on how to deliver and serve termination notices and eviction papers.
Pay the rent or Get out!
These are the most commonly served notices to tenants. It won’t be a problem if you know your tenant very well and it’s the first time that they have not paid their rent. Some landlords are strict about this, maybe because they have faced numerous tenants who would refuse on paying their rent on time and they don’t want to trust their tenants into giving them extended periods of time to pay their overdue rent. No matter what the case is, you can present them this notice.
What are Cure Notices?
These means that your tenants have broken your rules and violated it to an extent such as bringing pets even if you have clearly stated that pets are not allowed in your home or building, or making disruptive noise when the rules clearly say to refrain from making unnecessary or excessive noise. There are many reasons (even how petty they are) why you may want to present them the Cure Notice, but as long as they broke a rule, you have the right to throw them out.
The Harshest of all the Notices
Unconditional quit notices are given to the tenants if they have been caught doing something wrong on numerous occasions like for example dealing or doing drugs inside the premises, seriously damage the room or apartment that they are renting, have been late on paying their rents for many times already, or violated any rules that you have in your rental agreement clause. The tenants are ordered to vacate immediately.
Some tenants are just stubborn and still won’t fix their leases or vacate the premises. In times like these, you may need to take legal action by serving them with unlawful detainer lawsuit and properly serving the tenants with summons and complaint about eviction.
