Basic Evictions Workshop

The primary focus of this workshop is the basic Residential Eviction action for Non-Payment of Rent. Emphasis is on the importance of using the legally correct notice to eliminate any defense against the eviction action. The class covers the key issues in drafting notices and the common mistakes that are frequently made in filling out and serving the notice, which can result in case delays.

The goal is to develop an understanding of the complete Eviction process, not just filing out notices.

  • How and what days do you count for a 10- or 30-Day Notice?
  • Common technical defenses used by tenants, including tender, waiver, and partial payments; plus, how to deal with them
  • What do the different types of notices mean, what do they tell a tenant, and when should you serve more than one notice?
  • What are the grounds for different types of Evictions and their corresponding notices?
  • When does a tenant have the right to cure, and when do they not?
  • Possession of the property by judgment
  • Ordering and handling of Writs
  • The use of stipulations in the eviction process
  • Abandonment of the property and tenant liability
  • Lease language that does and doesn’t work

It is strongly recommended that clients follow up the Basic Evictions Workshop with attendance at our Advanced Non-Rent Eviction Workshop to clearly understand the eviction process and correct notices for evicting tenants for cause, as this is a more complicated area of eviction legal procedures.
