Eviction can be a costly and stressful experience for all concerned. For landlords, itís vital they follow the strict procedures set out in law.

Dealing with a difficult tenant can be extremely challenging: they may be in arrears with their rent, misusing the property or creating other types of problems for you and the local community. If the tenant refuses to move out, a landlord must navigate a myriad of laws to bring about a successful eviction, which can mean added anxiety and tension.

The steps to be taken are determined by the type of possession a landlord seeks and the tenancy agreement they have. Failure to adhere exactly to the proper procedures would not only stall the eviction, but could also result in a landlord being ordered to pay his tenantís legal costs and being charged with harassment.
