Tenant Problems

 

Q: How will you handle tenant eviction if a tenant goes bad and refuses to vacate?

 

Ans: If a tenant refuses to move out after being served a due termination notice as per the lease agreement terms, we will seek your approval and file an eviction lawsuit on behalf of you. In most situations, when the tenant realizes that we mean business they will be willing to go for a negotiated settlement and vacate peacefully. If not, we will leave it to our legal counsel to obtain the court order directing the tenant to leave and local law enforcement agencies will be pressed into service if the tenant does not co-operate.

 

Legal costs of tenant eviction are separate and it shall be estimated depending on complexity, location and the lease terms.
