I Want Someone Evicted

Do you have a home with a non paying tenant occupying it?  Your options are:

A.   Do nothing.  You wouldn't be reading this if that was your plan, right?

B.  A 'do-it-yourself' eviction process.  This can be done, but be careful, you could be jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire.   Eviction involves a lawsuit (unlawful detainer) and lots of precise paperwork.  It takes time and money.  If you think this might be the route you want to go, the video below lays out some of what you'll be in for​

So maybe that doesn't seem all that appetizing after watching the video.   There is another option:

C.  SGI Property Management handles the process for you.  WE get the notices posted legally.  We oversee the process as it winds through the courts.  We'll even advise you on how to get the tenant out without a lawsuit (which is sometimes the cheapest and fastest thing to do.

Maybe you are just looking for a quick overview of the process?  Here is just the first part of the first step in the process laid out:

The first step is to end the agreement for tenancy with the eviction notice being served. Some property managers in Phoenix will hire someone to handle this delivery when they have knowledge that the tenant will be in the home. As this is the most critical step, you should be aware there are several types of first notices that can be used depending on your state’s regulations.

  1. Nonpayment of Rent – If the rent is not paid you can serve a notice that the tenant has a set amount of time to pay or they will be evicted. If the tenant does come and pay the full amount specified you cannot perform an eviction.
  2. 30 Day or 60 Day Notice – In most states the landlord can give a notice to be out in 30 or 60 days with no reason specified. It could also be as short as a 20 day notice at times. There are many different exclusions, so you need to carefully understand your states regulations.
  3. Fixing a Violation – In many different states you can serve this type if a part of the lease agreement has been violated. This will require the tenant to correct this or be forced to move out.
  4. Unconditional Notice – This can be given to the tenant to move without any exceptions. This typically has to be due to a serious violation of the lease agreement or if they are breaking the law on your property.

Whew!  That was just the first step.  Much more to the process beyond this.  If you'd like us to outline the process more for you and tell you how we can help, give us a call.
