Evictions: Operational Resources


When seeking to evict a resident, the ability of the housing provider to do so may depend on the reasons for the eviction, and the jurisdiction of the rental unit in question. States where local municipalities can enact landlord-tenant regulations, may impose additional regulations governing evictions. The chart provided highlights jurisdictions that have “just cause” eviction standards – meaning residents can only be evicted based on enumerated reasons. As always, the web of eviction law can be complex, so please contact a licensed attorney in your jurisdiction for more information and advice.
