How Evictions Work

The Eviction Process

The eviction process can be confusing and costly if not done properly. An eviction may cost you thousands of dollars in legal fees. You may not be able to even collect for damages. You are not able to terminate the tenancy without first suing the tenant. State laws in California set out detailed requirements to end the tenancy and they can be confusing.

You have several options when terminating a tenancy. There are several options when choosing how to terminate a month to month tenancy. Landlords are obligated to send certain notices when attempting to solve a problem.

The legal process of evicting a problem tenant can be confusing and attempting to do the process on your own can result in more legal troubles.
