Reasons for Eviction

Failure to Pay Rent: Three Day Notice to Pay Rent or Vacate
This is the most common reason for evictions. The day to pay rent has past, and the tenants have not paid rent. A Three-Day Notice to Pay Rent or Vacate may be served on the Tenants on the day after rent is due, even if there is a “grace” period (i.e. “late fee if paid after the 5th day”) If the Tenants do not pay within this time, then the eviction can start by serving them with a Summons and Complaint.

Failure to Comply with Lease: Ten-Day Notice to Comply with Lease or Vacate
This typically happens when the Tenants are not complying with the terms of the lease, such as the Tenants have a pet in violation of the lease, fail to mow the lawn, keep dead vehicles on the property, etc… A Ten-Day Notice to Comply with Lease or Vacate is served on the Tenants. If the Tenants do not fix the problem, then the eviction can start by serving them with a Summons and Complaint.

Termination of Tenancy: Twenty-Day Notice to Vacate
The Landlord decides that the no longer want the Tenants on their property. A Twenty-Day Notice is served on the Tenants at least twenty-one days prior to the end of the lease term. The lease term usually ends on the last day of the month. If the Tenants do not vacate the property, then the eviction can start by serving them with a Summons and Complaint.

Creation of a Nuisance, Waste or Illegal Activity: Three Day Notice to Vacate
This happens when the Tenants have created a nuisance on the property, are actively damaging the property, or have been found by the police to have committed some illegal activity on the property. A Three-Day Notice to Vacate the Property is served on the Tenants. The Tenants do not have an opportunity to cure the problem. If the Tenants do not vacate the property, then the eviction can start by serving them with a Summons and Complaint.
