The eviction process can be a troubling experience for renters who rely on the stability of the home they rent. As a consequence, it is important for renters to understand the eviction process and when a landlord may be able to evict them. In general, to evict a renter, a landlord must provide notice, usually in writing, and must follow certain formalities to evict the renter from their home.
Once the renter has been served with a notice of eviction, they have different options depending on the circumstances. If the renter does not wish to move out, they can correct whatever behavior the landlord is alleging violates the lease and see if the landlord is willing to continue with the lease agreement after the alleged violation of the lease has been corrected. If the renter does not wish to move out, they can remain in the unit. The options available to the renter may depend on the type of notice they receive.
