EVICTION SERVICES


Since 2002, I have been assisting property owners evict problem tenants. I offer a fast PAY AS YOU GO Eviction service. My “pay as you go” service is designed to evict tenants as quickly as possible at the lowest cost to you. Once the Landlord has served the tenant with the proper 3,10 or 20 days Notice to Vacate, I can be hired to serve a Summons & Complaint for Unlawful Detainer on the tenant, and if necessary obtain a Judgment against the tenant allowing you to take back your property. My “pay as you go” eviction services can be broken down as follows:

STEP ONE: $250.00 – I will prepare and serve a Summons & Complain for Unlawful Detainer on the tenant. The tenant will have 7 days to respond to my office in writing. If the tenant vacates the property in within 7 days then MISSION ACCOMPLISHED with no further legal costs to you! If not – Go to Step Two

STEP TWO: $450.00 or $650.00 – If the tenant fails to respond to the Summons within 7 days of service and has not vacated the property, I will then obtain a Default Judgment from the Court (usually the next day.) The Clerk’s office will then issue a Writ of Restitution restoring the property to you. The Sheriff will usually serve the Writ of Restitution on the tenant the next day with an instruction to vacate the property usually within 7 days. If the tenant still has not vacated the property when the Sheriff returns, then the Sheriff will stand by as you the Landlord remove the tenant’s possessions. If the tenant interferes, then Sheriff will arrest the tenant. TOTAL COST FOR THE DEFAULT JUDGMENT& WRIT OF RESTITUTION - $450.00 OR...

If the tenant does respond to the Summons & Complaint for Unlawful Retainer within 7 days of service, then a mandatory Show Cause hearing is scheduled. At the hearing, if the Commissioner determines that there are no disputed facts, the Court will issue a Judgment in favor of the Landlord instructing the Clerk to issue a Writ of Restitution.
TOTAL COST FOR THE SHOW CAUSE HEARING, JUDGMENT & WRIT OF RESTITUTION - $650.00

If the tenant does not avail himself to personal services, then a court order permitting service by posting & mail may be obtained for $200.00. If the tenant has not vacated the property by the time the Sheriff services the Writ of Restitution, then the Landlord is charged a “standby” fee by the Sheriff’s Office. If you the Landlord does not prevail at the Show Cause hearing because the Court has determined that a factual dispute exists between you and the tenant, I can be hired to represent you at trial for $2000.00.
