Forcible Entry and Detainer (Evictions)

Forcible entry and detainer is summary proceeding in which the landlord or owner of a property serves notice to the tenant of a pending eviction from the property and the intent to recover possession of property. With a court order, the police or law enforcement official may forcibly remove the tenant from the property.

Typically a tenant can be evicted for violation of one or more provisions of the lease agreement, such as: 

  • Failure to make lease payments on time
  • Keeping pets or persons not authorized to reside at the premises under the lease
  • Conducting illegal or criminal activity on the premises

If you believe you have been wrongfully ousted from, or deprived of possession a property we can help.
