Why is timing important with evitions?
The timeframe that you have for evicting your tenants legally is a highly important factor to the success of your case. That is why you will need to have legal guidance to ensure that every step that is taken is legal. You will need to bring an eviction application as soon as possible otherwise the process will be costly and lengthy. No eviction may happen without an order of the court. This may only be granted once the court has considered all the circumstance of the situation.
When Can tenants Be Evicted?
Once a tenant has breached their rental agreement or they have failed to pay their rent on time, you will first have to place your tenant “on terms.” This means that you are warning them that you have acknowledged the breach and if this breach continues, that you will take further action by cancelling their lease. If this breached is not remedied within the stipulated time frame, the landlord is able to cancel the lease, and if the tenant refuses to leave, you may begin the process of eviction.
