We have covered some of the common reasons for eviction on our blog, but in this post we will take a closer look at evicting a tenant due to drug-related activity. There are many different examples of unlawful drug activity that tenants may carry out and some landlords have no choice but to move forward with an eviction. If you have proof that your tenant is violating the law and want to have them removed from the premises, it is pivotal to approach the eviction carefully and in a timely manner.
There are all sorts of examples of illegal drug activity involving tenants, from drug possession to distribution and even manufacturing. As a landlord, these violations can be very problematic for a number of reasons. Not only can this activity attract further problems such as violence but it may also result in property damage and other concerns. When someone is selling drugs from a rental home, for example, they may be attracting potentially dangerous people to the premises on a daily basis.
We fully understand the challenges that landlords may experience when evicting a tenant, from legal considerations and anxiety to difficulties with tenants and uncertainty with respect to the law. By carefully looking into your legal rights, your options and the details of your case, you may be able to ease these concerns and work toward a successful end result.
