Eviction

By

Definition:

An eviction is the legal removal of a tenant from a rental property. The eviction is originated by the landlord or by the landlord’s representatives, but is carried out by an officer of the court. It is illegal for a landlord to personally lock-out a tenant.

Two of the most common causes for eviction are non-payment of rent and breach of lease or rental agreement.

Examples:
The landlord filed for an eviction to remove the tenant from the apartment because the tenant hadn't paid his rent in two months.
