Landlord / Tenant Cases

Action & Eviction

Landlord / tenant cases normally involve actions by landlords against tenants for unpaid rent. In addition, landlords usually request that the court grant them a warrant of eviction, which permits a landlord to have a marshal remove the tenant from the premises if the tenant does not leave as directed.


The landlord may also be entitled to a judgment for:
  • Attorneys' fees
  • Costs
  • Expenses
  • Interest on the debt
  • Unpaid rent

Rules & Restrictions

There are specific rules for the service of the summons and petition, and there are time periods that must be taken into account when seeking a court date. Representation by an attorney is recommended.
