EVICTION

how can a lawyer

help during an eviction?

 Each province has its own laws to follow when it comes to real estate, rent, and how disputes are to be resolved. Eviction is legal process demanding a tenants remove themselves and their belongings from the owner's premises. For this to happen, everything has to strictly follow all procedures and the "letter of the law." If either party slips up, legal action could take place by either party. Evictions can happen with leasing or rental property or through mortgages. There are strict rules to follow that go by the contract signing when a person purchases a home or rents. If an eviction must happen, the tenant has a certain amount of time to get his/her belongings out of the home and hand over the keys. Since this process follows the written contract and the law, there are instances where the person residing in the home or the landlord may find loopholes to sue the other party. 

EVERY STORY HAS TWO SIDES TO IT. WHEN IT COMES TO REAL ESTATE AND EVICTION, THE SAME HOLDS TRUE.

THE LANDLORD TENANT MAY FIND ISSUES WITH EACH OTHER WHERE LEGAL ACTION MUST GET TAKEN.

FOR THE LANDLORD, A LAWYER WILL LOOK INTO WHY THEY ARE REQUESTING AN EVICTION AND IF IT IS LEGIT ACCORDING TO THE LEASE AND THE LAW. 

 

If a tenant damages the landlord's house or property or skips rent, then those are the two main things a landlord will go after a tenant to evict them. If the tenant fights the order, they can get their own lawyer while the landlord will seek the legal route through his/her lawyer to carry out the eviction. Sometimes the landlord will not fulfill his/her obligations by providing the tenant a habitable place. Most situations like plumbing, air, or a hazard within the home like a broken floor can leverage a tenant to sue the landlord and most likely win.
