Eviction / Unlawful Detainer

The Appropriate Notice

Our attorneys are adept at helping you choose the right notice, completing it accurately, and serving it to the tenant in accordance with the law. These are the three most essential steps for landlords to focus on when pursuing an unlawful detainer action. If there is an error in any of the above referenced steps, it could lead to delays or altogether prevent the landlord from obtaining their desired outcome. These notices include nonpayment, post-foreclosure and breach of contract. Should the tenant fail to comply with the notice, you’ll want to have them evicted.

Filing for an Unlawful Detainer

Should a tenant fail to timely resolve issues specified in the formal notice, the landlord has the option to sue them for unlawful detainer. This is also referred to as an eviction and is a summary proceeding prioritized by the judiciary over all categories of civil cases with the exception of temporary restraining orders. Because the law imposes a relatively short timeframe in which residents may respond compared to other civil cases, the court will not tolerate technical errors of any sort and will likely dismiss the case immediately if the landlord makes an error. We are skilled at avoiding the errors and getting you to judgment.
