Evicting a resident is not an easy matter, and every state has different rules and guidelines that, if not handled exactly to form, can result in the property owner’s case being dismissed. From the notice to pay or quit, to hiring an attorney, and going through the unlawful detainer process—you need to avoid the common mistakes property owners and managers make to give yourself the best chance to win your case in court. 

  • Self-help eviction: the single biggest mistake property owners and managers make is engaging in what is known as a “self-help eviction.” The only way to legally extinguish rights in the property is by a court order. 

  • Inadequate notice: generally, before you can file for an eviction, you have to provide the resident with such a notice to give them an opportunity to cure the problem or leave the property and, should they fail to comply, only then can you file your action to evict. 

  • No evidence: failing to provide this evidence to the court could result in you having to start your case all over again and the resident getting to spend weeks or months more in your property, possibly without paying you any rent. 

  • Failing to have an eviction attorney: few property owners and managers are truly qualified to handle their own evictions. There are just too many small mistakes that could come back to bite you, in delays and in lost rent.
