Just because you own the property doesn’t mean your rights are superior to that of the tenant. Your case is only as good as the rental agreement you have. You’ll need to submit proof that your tenant committed a breach, and also provide other related records that may be relevant to your case, such as payment paper trails, and tenant-landlord communication. Nevertheless, winning an eviction suit begins by the time you write the contract. Many landlords don’t understand the consequences of their negligence until it’s too late. Hire a competent real estate attorney to ensure your contract is ‘air tight’. Have tenancy issues here in Los Angeles? Atty. Schwartz of Schwartz Wisot, LLP can help you.
