Evictions- Filing Fee $51.00

There are several different types of eviction notices a landlord can start with: 

  • 7 day Notice to Pay Rent or Quit (PDF) . Used if the tenant is behind on their rent. If the tenant pays the rent owed, or if the landlord accepts any partial payment, the tenant may stay and the notice is void. If the time lapses and the tenant does not pay or vacate, the next step is to file a Complaint for Summary Eviction. THIS IS THE ONLY NOTICE THAT GOES STRAIGHT TO AN ORDER FOR SUMMARY EVICTION.
  • 30-day No Cause Eviction (PDF). Used if the landlord wants the tenant to vacate the residence and does not want to give a reason. Once the time has lapsed for this step, the landlord must serve the tenant with an Unlawful Detainer Notice. After the time as lapsed for this step, then the landlord may file a Complaint for Summary Eviction.
  • 5 day Notice to Quit for Violation of Rental Agreement (PDF). Used if the tenant is in violation of their written rental agreement with their landlord. Once the time has lapsed for this step, the landlord must serve the tenant with an Unlawful Detainer Notice. After the time as lapsed for this step, then the landlord may file a Complaint for Summary Eviction.
  • 3 day Notice to Quit (PDF). Used if the landlord deems the tenant to be a nuisance by either subletting the rental property, permitting waste on the rental property, carrying on an unlawful business inside or on the rental property, violating any of the controlled substance laws inside or on the rental property, or committing any other behavior that might be deemed a nuisance to the landlord. Once the time has lapsed for this step, the landlord must serve the tenant with an Unlawful Detainer Notice.

  • 5 day Tenancy at Will Notice (PDF). Used if the tenant has no rental agreement (written or verbal) and does not contribute any monetary value to the property or bills to maintain the property and its residents.

The landlord may choose to file or not file these Notices with the court.Service of the Notices can be done by either the landlord, with a witness over the age of 18, or by the Sheriff’s office.

  • Complaint for Summary Eviction (PDF). This is the final step in the process and MUST be filed with the Court. Along with filing this document, the court requires all of your original notices, any and all returns of service for those notices, and a copy of the lease agreement (if there is one). After these documents are submitted to the Court, and the tenant has not contested the eviction, and order will be done and filed. It will be the landlord’s responsibility to take this order to the Sheriff’s office for service.
