Include Key Elements to Ensure Effective Nonpayment Settlements
An owner seeking to evict a resident can’t begin an eviction lawsuit without first legally terminating the tenancy. This means giving the resident written notice, as specified in the state’s termination statute. If the tenant doesn’t move or fix the issue, for example, by paying the rent or finding a new home for an unauthorized occupant, you can then file a lawsuit to evict. State laws set out very detailed requirements to end a tenancy.
