Real Estate - Unlawful Detainer/Evictions

Unlawful Detainer -  Evictions

What comes to mind when you have a commercial or residential tenant who is not paying their rent?

     Speed. Speed at removing the non-paying commercial or residential tenant as fast as possible. At Pirrone & Pirrone, LLP we understand you have a mortgage to pay, tax liability and perhaps another career besides managing your hard-earned investment property. That's why as soon as we are hired as your attorneys, we start working on your case that same day. Often within hours of speaking with you over the phone, we can file and put out for service an Unlawful Detainer action, or issue a 3 Day Notice to Rent or Quit. The entire process usually requires only between 3 and 5 weeks. Experience dictates that it is critical to initiate an Unlawful Detainer lawsuit as soon as possible; providing more time for the tenants only increases the amount due, and leads to further problems. An Unlawful Detainer action is a special court proceeding to evict someone from the place where they live. This usually happens when a tenant stays after the lease is up, the lease is canceled, or if the tenant does not pay the rent that is due. When the landlord wins, they'll get a "judgment for possession" and the tenant has to move out. The sheriff can enforce this judgment. This means the sheriff can physically make the tenant leave. Besides a tenant's failure to pay rent, we have also successfully represented Landlords resolve the following problems:

  • Failure to pay rent
  • Damage caused by tenants
  • Violation of contractual terms
  • Criminal activity
  • Nuisances - including noise complaints, unsafe conditions, failure to maintain a clean and sanitary premises   
  • Abandoned property
  • Foreclosure

     Call and schedule an appointment with an Attorney today. We can help you avoid common problems and mistakes, and find the best cost-effective strategy.
