Renting Eviction Notice And The Tenant
Renting eviction notices are never an easy thing to get away from if you have had a few that show up on your court hearings when a property owner does a criminal check. If you have one or two evictions, you may find that the potential property owner will not rent to you. You will be considered a high-risk renter that they may not want to deal with because the potential for eviction is higher.
To avoid receiving the renting eviction notice, you should always pay your rent on time, follow set guidelines in the rental agreement and if you decide to vacate the premises because toy cannot pay, talk the property owner and try to arrange to pay any rent that may be due. This not only keeps the case out of court, but also puts you in better standings with the property owner.
The eviction process itself starts with property owner going to court to receive a eviction notice that will be delivered by a process server or the owner themselves. You usually have thirty days to vacate, but again this may vary by state. After the thirty days, if you are not gone, a deputy sheriff can come in and physical remove from the premises. If this happens, you will be allowed to move your belongings out, but very quickly. You may have to schedule a time with the sheriff to come back your property.
There is also a five day pay or vacate clause in most apartment leases that require you to leave if you do not pay the rent. This can be enforced on the sixth day of non-payment. Many property owners do not use this clause as much unless the area is in high demand for rentals. Either way, if you do not pay the rent, you are going to receive a renting eviction notice to vacate the premises. You will have to leave and hope that the property owner does not take you to court to receive any back rent that is owed to him or her when you vacated the premises without paying. You might have to pay for storage on your property as well.
You could choose to fight an eviction notice or even ask for more time. If you are located in a state that has a winter law that states that families cannot be evicted during certain months during the colder season, you will be safe for a little while, but then the property owner can and more than likely will sue you for the rent money and court costs.
If you feel your eviction is unfounded, you may wish to show up for court and ask that the eviction be banished from your record and you will move within a few days. Many people have done this and then they do not have this blemish on their record. This however is up to the judge handling the hearing. You do have to provide good reasoning as to why this should be removed from your record.
