THINGS TO KNOW

WHAT ARE SOME REASONS I CAN EVICT A TENANT?

Reasons for evictions fall into three major categories: non-payment of rent, “holding over,” and breach of the lease.

NON-PAYMENT EVICTION

There is no grace period for nonpayment, so eviction can begin the day after the rent is due.

HOLDING OVER EVICTION

“Holding over” refers to when tenants continue to live at a property after the lease has ended.

BREACH OF LEASE EVICTION

Landlords can evict tenants who have violated some part of the lease, for example, by allowing people not listed in the lease to live at the property or by engaging in criminal activity within the home
