Legal term, Unlawful Detainer , is a legal process to recover property from unwanted tenants.  An Unlawful Detainer is for possession only. If the tenants leave after they have been served the Unlawful Detainer, we can turn the Unlawful Detainer into a Money Judgment and garnish wages. Garnishments can be enforced provided you know the tenants place of employment.

Some of our staff members have been processing Unlawful Detainer since 2000. We are Knowledgeable in Unlawful Detainer; we can prepare stipulations, Judgments, declaration in default of payments, motions, Small Claims and Wage garnishments.

The following are steps to make an Unlawful Detainer run as smooth as possible:

The first step to an Unlawful Detainer is to give the tenant legal notice of your request. Requested notices could include a notice of non-payment of rent, notice to comply with covenant, 30 to 60 Day Termination of Tenancy or 3/90-Day Notice to Quit (Foreclosure).

The second step to an Unlawful Detainer is to serve the notice. When the notice has expired you can file the unlawful Detainer. On average an Unlawful Detainer may take approximately 4 weeks, if it is uncontested. If the Unlawful Detainer is contested add an additional 2-3 weeks to the case.

Items needed to process an Unlawful Detainer:

  1. The original Three Day Notice/or Applicable Notice
  2. The original Proof of Service
  3. Copy of Rental Agreement
  4. Copy of Rent increase notices
  5. Owners signature on the legal documents .

To expedite an Unlawful Detainer as quick as possible, We would need the necessary information (listed above).
