Eviction Myths

Myth #1: It takes 90 days to evict a Tenant.

From start to finish it takes about 42 days.

Myth #2: It’s possible to evict Tenants within 10 days.

It is necessary to give proper notice and allow time for the hearings to occur, so unfortunately there is no way to speed up the process this much. 

Myth #3: It takes longer to evict someone who is pregnant or has children.

It takes the same amount of time no matter who the tenant is.

Myth #4: It takes longer to evict someone in the winter.

This is usually a myth, however, it is true if the unit in question is a mobile home located on a mobile home lot. 

Myth #5: You need a Lawyer or Property Manager to file for eviction.

You are able to file for eviction on your own as long as you can follow the proper procedures.
