Eviction (a.k.a. Unlawful Detainer)
Do you have a tenant that is not paying rent or in violation of a residential or commercial lease agreement? In California, defaulting tenants must be removed through a court process called "unlawful detainer." An unlawful detainer is an eviction action that is relatively short in process. The California statutes on unlawful detainer deem the eviction process a "summary proceeding" - a proceeding designed to move quickly and efficiently. As a result, a landlord should receive rent from its tenant or the court will turn over the premises to the landlord.
Because unlawful detainer/eviction actions are designed to be a short process, landlords are given very little leeway to make mistakes. More specifically, defects in documents or pleadings such as a "Three-Day Notice to Pay Rent or Quit" may result in a dismissal of an unlawful detainer/eviction action.
