Eviction (Unlawful Detainer)

An Eviction (Unlawful Detainer) is a civil case brought by a landlord/owner who is suing a tenant to obtain a court order giving the landlord/owner the right to regain possession of the property from the tenant.


In an Eviction (Unlawful Detainer) case, a plaintiff must serve a Notice to Pay Rent or Quit on the tenant before the complaint is filed. The plaintiff may file an eviction (unlawful detainer) complaint if the tenant refuses to comply with the notice, and does not either pay the rent or quit the premises.
