Why People get Evicted
Most of the time, a landlord starts eviction proceedings against a tenant because of unpaid rent. He gives you notice that you have to leave by a certain day, and you may feel powerless to do anything to stop the process. But the circumstances aren’t always that simple.
You may not be paying because of serious hardship, or because your home has serious defects and your landlord isn’t responding to requests for help. Every situation is different.
