Understanding the Difference between Eviction and Ejectment
Eviction and ejectment are two of the main types of disputes regarding the possession of real property. The real estate attorneys at Park & Caporrino have assisted clients – both property owners and tenants – in each type of dispute. Eviction is the most common of the two issues. For an eviction case to be valid, there must be a written or oral rental agreement between the property owner and the tenant. If this is the case, a property owner may evict his or her tenant for non-payment of rent, among other reasons. However, if there is no landlord/tenant relationship, a property owner cannot file for eviction. In this instance, ejectment is likely the proper course of action. Regardless of your situation and whether you are the property owner or a tenant or occupant, trust the expertise of Park & Caporrino to assist you.
Basics of the Eviction Process
Regardless of whether you are the person filing for eviction or the person being evicted, you should obtain legal counsel for the process. In fact, if the property owner is a corporation, a limited liability company or other legal entity, that entity must be represented by legal counsel. There are myriad statutes related to the eviction process , including notice and filing requirements that must be strictly adhered to.Rrely on Park & Caporrino’s attorneys to help you navigate the legal requirements. Property owners may evict their tenants for a number of reasons, including non-payment of rent, disorderly conduct and other lease violations.
