FAQ

How often are eviction notices actually carried out?
How often are eviction notices actually carried out?That answer is going to vary from country to country and, in the U.S., from state to state. Landlord tenant laws vary and some make evictions easier than others. It also changes from landlord to landlord. Some landlords are aggressive and start proceedings as soon as they can. Others may give tenants another chance.In my experience, I’ve only had to do only one or two actual evictions. I’ve filed, or asked my boss to file, papers for more. Usually the tenants disappear before the actual eviction date. Personally, I prefer it when they just disappear, with all their belongings. It’s almost impossible, once someone has been evicted, to ever track them down and garnish their wages or to get what they owe you. Because of that, I never saw a benefit to having to go through the whole dramatic scene of having someone’s belongings carried out while they watch.Side Note: I worked in one office where the Business Manager insisted evictions be turned over to him. From there, in theory, he’d go downtown to the courts and file the papes. (This was around 1999, before the courts here even understood what “that internet thing” was.) He was an alcoholic and had lost his license, so he couldn’t drive. The area we handled was easily walkable. We handled properties for a number of owners scattered through the area and it was easy to reach all on foot, if needed. The court, though, was dow one steep hill and up another - easily reachable by bus. However he didn’t use the bus. (In short, that’d mean figuring out bus routes - and he didn’t want to make the effort.) That left him, through his own stubbornness and recklessness, without a way to reach the courts unless he dared to ask me for a ride - which would be admitting he needed help with something. So when a tenant stopped paying rent, it was often 3–4 months of excuses for why we weren’t evicting before he’d consider filing papers. By then the tenant had often skipped out. We could no longer track them or their address, file a suit or eviction, or collect rent.
How do I serve an eviction notice?
Well, by the fact that you are asking this question, we know that you haven’t done this before. Since you haven’t done this before, get a lawyer.Evicting a tenant is one of the easiest processes to mess up and end up with you spending a lot of time in the court house, a tenant that will be staying for a very long time without paying you, and you ending up hiring a lawyer to clean up the even bigger mess you now have. Hire a law office that specializes in this type of work. Hit google and search for Real Estate Attorneys and/or eviction services. Many will offer flat-fee services as long as you haven’t screwed it up already. Pay close attention to the steps they take and take copious notes on how to do it correctly within the law. Then you’ll understand how much work it takes and how it has to be done so you are successful in court the first time. If you need to evict someone again in the future, you have the road map on how to do it right. You may even figure out that it is a better use of time to use a service than do it yourself. Remember, your time is worth something.
Can my dad kick me out without an eviction notice?
Only tenants get eviction notices. Depending upon the laws in your area, your parents are only required to support you to a certain age. Beyond that point, if they no longer wish to do so, you can be kicked out like any other trespassers.It's a shame when a family comes to this stage. But if this is where your family relationship is at, then you need to make a decision: are you better off living with your parents or not? If you are better off living with your parents, then you need to change the behaviours that they find unacceptable until such time as you can afford to move out and live independently.
How can I fight a three day eviction notice with false reasons to evict on it?
A 3 day eviction is unreasonable, and probably against your lease terms if you have one. Also, to legally evict a tenant it has to go through the court system. This can take from 30–90 day’s to do so. Your landlord cannot force you out, throw your personal items out of the unit, or threaten you in any way. What I would do is not answer his/her calls, knocks on the door etc. Let them go through the system if the want you out. If in fact you feel that you are being evicted for no good reason, wait till the court date set up (30–90 day’s)and explain your situation to the judge.
How do you fill an eviction form?
This depends on where you live. Eviction is a legal process (not just a form) and rules vary but must be followed strictly. Most evictions ate done by lawyers for this reason. They are ruled on by a court and often carried out by the sheriff. Generally the law is some variation of notice to pay or quit a certain number of days after payment is due. Then you have a reasonable waiting period. Then there is a filing in court. Sometimes it is a general court and sometimes it is a housing court. That requires you to send notice of the court date. Then there is a court appearance. If they show up (if they don't you might win by default or have to reschedule) they might have a reason they didn't pay (say your property has rats). You might not be able to evict them. You might not even be able to get paid until after you fix the problem. But if you gave all the notices and filed correctly and they have no defense the judge might order them to pay or leave or both. He'll give them time to move out. If they aren't gone by then you can go to the sheriff and they'll post a notice giving them some time to vacate and if they don't then they might get evicted. That means that going on your property uninvited is a crime (trespassing) and they can get arrested.It's a long process. There are a lot of mights, cans and maybes. You can't just change the locks and lock them out. That's illegal and you'll then be in trouble.If this isn't about money you can sometimes move things a little faster but then you really want a lawyer because mistakes will slow you way down.Better? Try to negotiate to get them out of the property and out of your hair.
