If a lessor wants to break the contract with his lessee because of legal reasons, he or she will probably be involved in eviction process. Removing tenant from a rental property should be confirmed with the respective documentation. It may be a simple notice to the lessee with an explanation of the eviction and a due date, which he or she must move out. It is very important to prepare eviction notice, as the process may escalate to a legal dispute. The length of time, the whole procedure will take depends on your particular circumstances. The following reasons may be legal ground for the eviction:
- Refusal to pay rent on time : typically few days.
- Misbehavior, that may cause damage to the property (or keeping an unapproved pet)
- Unconditional Quit: most often extreme cases, for example, tenants involved in criminal activity.
