The following are some frequently asked questions about eviction services:
Why does someone get evicted?
There are many reasons a tenant can be evicted, and all of the reasons for possible eviction should be outlined in a lease. A tenant could be evicted for being unnecessarily noisy or for not maintaining the property, but most evictions happen over rent payment. If a tenant has not paid the rent or regularly misses the payment deadline a landlord may choose to evict that person.
How is an eviction done?
Violation of a rental agreement is often resolved between a tenant and a landlord after notice is given. This may include an eviction letter or a face-to-face meeting. In some cases, the tenant is uncooperative and the landlord must use a different approach. Forms must be filed with the local County Clerk and Sheriff. These forms will give the landlord the right to pursue legal action and demand that the tenant vacate the property. Tenants are allowed to dispute the charges.
How long does the eviction process take?
An eviction service can help a landlord vacate a tenant in less than one month, though this time may increase if the tenant chooses to dispute the charges. In some cases, a tenant can pay the full amount of rent that is due to cancel the eviction process.
How much does an eviction service cost?
Eviction services typically charge a few hundred dollars to help landlords get rid of unwanted tenants. There is a fee to file any paperwork with a local County Clerk or Sheriff. All locks should be changed following an eviction. In all, a landlord may pay about the equivalent of one month’s rent to evict a tenant, but the landlord will not have to worry about late or missed payments from that person again.
