Common Causes of Tenant Eviction

Tenant eviction is ugly. The reasons why tenants get evicted differ depending upon the situation or individual. In line with this, cities and states consider “no-cause” evictions as being unlawful and unfair. As a result, ultimately ousting tenants out as an option only leads to eviction proceedings. So, which of these reasons are grounds for tenant eviction?

1. Complaints of Noise

2. Use of E-cigarette

3. Use of Medical Marijuana 

4.Damage to  Landscape 

5. Inability to pay rent

6. Bringing forbidden pets

7. Any of the choices

Answer: 7.

Each of the above-mentioned reasons might end up in eviction proceedings, but most of them are amenable under law.  For instance, turning down the  TV or stereo volume corrects noise complaints, paying necessary fees allows unauthorized pets to stay within the premises, hiring a professional landscape gardener fixes landscape damages, and others. Unpaid rent can even be worked out. However, drug or e-cigarette use is the sole exception. In this case, tenants are subject to immediate termination once they are caught using drugs or e-cigarettes within the property.  But, this case too is subject to deliberation by the judge handling it.
