>> Review Eviction Notice Forms Below <<

There are several different types of eviction notices:

Nonpayment of rent: Also referred to as a pay rent or quit notice, this eviction notice form is served upon the tenant when he/she is late paying rent. State statutes require that this eviction notice contain certain information to be legally enforceable. After serving this eviction form to the tenant, the landlord is required to wait until the minimum elapsed time, which can vary from 3 days to 21 days depending on the state but usually 5 days or less, before he can petition the court to evict the tenant. Failure to provide this eviction notice prior to petitioning the court will result in having to start the process over by serving this notice on the tenant and waiting for the mandatory time.  The tenant has the right to cure the default by paying the back rent in the time allotted. If the back rent is paid in full, the eviction process ends.

Lease Violation: An eviction notice for a lease violation is served when a tenant breaks some condition of the rental lease agreement. This can include infractions such as having a pet on the premises, using the apartment for a business, untagged automobiles, etc.  Again, this eviction notice must be served on the tenant prior to going to court. The usual time allowed to cure this type of default varies from 5 to 30 days with most states closer to 10 days.

Unconditional eviction notice:  A few states allow the unconditional eviction of a tenant for certain violations of the rental agreement or law. For this eviction notice to be effective the landlord must prove the violation. This type of eviction notice is rarely used and we do not supply it in our eviction notice kits.

Eviction is the removal of a tenant from rental property by the landlord. Eviction is the most common term used but depending on the laws of the jurisdiction or locality, eviction may also be known as unlawful detainer, summary possession, summary dispossess, forcible detainer, ejectment, and repossession, among other terms.

If, after being served the eviction notice, the tenant does not cure the default within the required time, the landlord can proceed to court. The court will then serve the tenant with a notice of the proceeding allowing him/her an opportunity to dispute the landlord's claim(s). If the tenant does not respond to this notice, the court will issue a default judgment and proceed with the eviction process. However, if the tenant responds, the court will make a determination of the validity of the tenants arguments. Some defenses include withholding rent needed to make repairs, improper rent increase, no eviction notice served and/or health and safety code violations at the location. In the event the court concludes the tenant has a valid defense, a hearing or trial will be scheduled at which the tenant can produce evidence to support his/her claim.

If the court decides in favor of the landlord, the eviction proceeds by a court order (eviction order). The order for eviction is served by the sheriff. The eviction is not complete until the time contained in the order expires. If the tenant has not moved out by that time the sheriff will remove his/her belongings. Only then can the landlord change the locks on the premises.

The eviction procedure can take as little as 20 days if executed properly, to a few months if the eviction proceeding results in a trial.
