LANDLORD RIGHTS

Nothing is worse than having a tenant who is not paying you the rent they agreed to pay and is living in the apartment free of charge. The tenant may even be destroying your investment and damaging your property while they are staying in an apartment that they're not paying for. Thankfully, a landlord can use the eviction process to remedy the situation. Some of the more common reasons for evictions in Connecticut are non-payment of rent, lapse of time, nuisance, breach of lease, or never, or no longer, having the right or privilege to occupy the premises. In Connecticut a landlord must first serve a notice to quit on the tenant to quit possession of the rental premises. If the tenant does not vacate in the time required by law after service of the notice to quit, it is necessary to file a complaint and summons with the Housing Court. Once the paperwork has been filed with the Housing Court, the landlord may be able to either obtain a default judgment or obtain a Court date. 

Should it be necessary to go to Court, having a competent and skilled attorney is essential. Attorney McEntee can easily navigate your case through the eviction process. It  may be able to negotiate with your tenant in Housing Court to get them to start paying you again. There also ways for a landlord to continue to accept payment from the tenant while still continuing with the eviction process. Call me know to learn whether this applies in your case.

Attorney McEntee is available for help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and can be reached for a free consultation at (203)
982-8396.

*Please note that Attorney McEntee does NOT represent tenants in the eviction process and does not provide a consultation to tenants who are being evicted.


STEPS IN THE EVICTION PROCESS



There are several steps involved in the eviction process. Under Connecticut law what is commonly called eviction is known as Summary Process Eviction. Although no case is exactly alike, most evictions can take from one week to three months depending on the facts of each case. Any mistakes in the paperwork or service of the paperwork could cause unnecessary expense and delay. It is important to have an experienced attorney representing you so that your cases progresses as quickly as possible.
