An eviction is simply a legalized process of removing an unwanted tenant from a rental property.
This process is never easy. It’s always marred with emotions, hard feelings, a lot of push and pulls, and sometimes lawsuits.
Without proper knowledge and experience, you may get empathetic with the tenant or you may attract a lawsuit. Both of which are bad for your rental business.
So, what can you do to avoid this?
Well, it’s quite simple! Leave this daunting task to Advanced Asset Management, Inc. We have what it takes to carry out evictions in a professional, civilized, and lawful manner.
Of course, we won’t take any pleasure in doing it, but when it comes to managing your business, we always treat it like it’s ours. This means putting emotions and empathy aside at all times.
Therefore, if we feel that an eviction is really necessary, you can count on us to see it through.
An eviction can be due to a number of reasons including:
- A tenant failing to honor their obligation to pay rent on time and in full
- Using the rental unit for criminal purposes
- Consistently going against the rules e.g. keeping a pet contrary to the lease agreement
- Expiration of lease agreement
- Being a nuisance to other tenants
- Harboring unauthorized tenants
- Damaging the rental property
- When taking the property off the market
With that in mind, you are probably wondering: how do we do it?
If so, here’s how:
Advanced Asset Management, Inc.’s Eviction Process
Regardless of the reason behind the eviction, everything has to be right. And by “right” we mean within the law. There are a lot of legal procedures to follow to keep lawsuits at bay.
Just like in most places, an eviction process in Reno, Nevada begins once the renter receives an eviction letter detailing the reason behind it and the deadline.
If the reason is failing to pay rent, we always issue the tenant with a “Demand for Rent” notice with a 5-day timeframe. During that time, they can either clear their arrears or vacate the rental.
Failure to do either of these options gives us the green light to file an eviction lawsuit against them.
If the amount owed is less than $10,000, then the case is filed in a Small Claims Court. But if it exceeds that amount then the case is handled by a District Court.
Within 14 days of filing the case, the tenant will be issued with a court “Summon” by either the county sheriff or an official from the court. With that, the renter can choose to vacate the property or contest the case.
Now, if the tenant decides to contest the case, a hearing date will be set. And during the proceedings, both parties will get a chance to prove their cases using solid or compelling evidence.
Once the case is heard and a verdict delivered, if the landlord wins the case, they get the power to issue the tenant with a notice to vacate. If the tenant refuses to vacate, a 7-day “Writ of Restitution” is issued giving the county sheriff the authority to carry out a forceful eviction.
After the eviction is complete and the tenant is out, we will get a locksmith to change the locks and anything left by the tenant will be thrown into an “eviction dumpster” as per legal requirements.
As you can see, an eviction isn’t easy. It can be a long and daunting experience for you, especially if you are a first-time landlord. Therefore, don’t stress about evicting a tenant. Instead, let us do it for you.
