Marble has raised a $2M seed round! Read about it on Geekwire.
While evictions are never an ideal scenario for either party, it is at time an inevitable outcome. With eviction moratoriums set to expire, here's some resources every landlord should know before considering evictions. Marble cannot help service evictions but these are some basic tools for landlords to understand how to approach the eviction process.
Tenants can break leases typically for the following reasons:
No matter what, landlords are strictly NOT allowed to change the lock on a property, remove tenants or belongings by force, or shut off utilities. That said, here's some of the legal reasons than may give grounds for eviction.
Here is an example template you can use to send your tenant a Notice of Eviction.
Dear Tenant’s Name,
You are hereby notified that your tenancy at property address will be terminated on date.
I am terminating our rental lease for the following reason: You have violated this particular section of the rental lease.
A court hearing may follow if you do not correct the violation above or leave the premises by termination date.
Your Name Date
In closing, renters deserve to be treated with respect, however there are moments when enough simply is enough. While typically, respectfully settling lease or rent disputes and finding new ways to move on is the better and healthier resolution, it is at times a necessary evil to pursue eviction. While Marble does not provide eviction services, it is still a great tool for establishing continuity during the turbulent times evictions may bring. Please reach out if you have any questions and we are happy to direct you to other eviction resources.
