Commercial eviction occurs when a commercial tenant fails to pay their rent or breaches the lease for any other reason. The landlord and tenant should both understand the commercial eviction process. The landlord must follow the eviction laws exactly. Otherwise the eviction may not be legal, and the landlord may have to start the process over again. The eviction laws vary in each state so it’s a good idea to check your state laws. Most states require that the landlord give the tenant written notice of the eviction. Evictions can be expensive for landlords. Tenants should avoid evictions because they damage business reputations and credit. It’s best if the parties can work out their differences to avoid eviction. However, sometimes landlord/tenant disputes end in eviction.
The following are typical reasons why a tenant may stop paying rent:
Many landlords prepare their own eviction notices, while others use an attorney to handle the eviction for them. The tenant has the opportunity to fight the eviction in court if the tenant feels that the eviction is unlawful. If the tenant is behind in rental payments, the tenant may also have an opportunity to pay the past-due rental amount and stop the eviction. Evictions can be complicated so you should consult with an attorney.
It is recommended that you hire an attorney that is experienced in evictions of commercial tenants and landlord/tenant laws. The attorney can explain the eviction laws, and answer your questions. The attorney can represent you in court with regard to an eviction matter.
