How can a landlord force tenants out of an illegal rental?
Your attorney can evict even unknown people and even without a lease. It’s easier if they also are behind on rent, but it can also be as a result of them ignoring a 30 day notice to move (3 day notice if they owe rent
30 day notice to move if they don’t).
Speaking as an experienced landlord, you could try “keys for cash”. You have the tenant sign something saying they give up legal possession and give you permission to change the locks. If they are illegal squatters, you might be suprised at what $50 or $100 will do. Ionce bought a house where the owner had been sent to drug rehab and she left behind three of her friends. No lease, and I didn’t even know their names. I offered them $50 each to be out by the end of the day, and they were really happy to take it. One even said “lt’s a pleasure doing business with you” Your results may vary, but it’sa lot faster and cheaper than taking legal action so worth a try.
