What if the Tenant Does not Comply with the Notice?
If the tenant fails to comply with the Notice, we then handle the eviction proceeding, which requires the filing of either a complaint for summary eviction, unlawful detainer or a complaint that seeks restitution of the premises and damages.
Landlords generally choose summary evictions because they restore the premises quickly and economically, and the necessity for a mini-trial that seeks money damages is avoided. We refer clients who seek money damages to one of our competent attorneys who will handle these proceedings for a flat fee. Seeking money damages from a tenant who cannot afford to pay his/her rent is generally not a good use of resources.
