We strongly suggest you seek legal counsel before issuing a 3-day or thirty-day Notice, thus starting the eviction process. Send a copy of any Notice to the Housing Authority. The copy of the Notice for the Housing Authority must include the lease violations (also known as "cause") that prompted the Notice.
You should cite the section of the lease that has been violated and give dates and specific examples of the violation(s). If the tenant complies, no further action is needed. If the tenant does not comply, follow up by taking appropriate legal steps. We strongly suggest you seek legal counsel for these steps. A copy of each legal document should be given to the Housing Authority. This includes Summons and Complaint, Unlawful Detainer judgment and/or Right of Possession.
Please keep in mind that an eviction goes on your tenant's credit report and may impact their ability to rent future dwellings. We urge you to use care in implementing this step. It should only be used for serious and repeated violations of the lease. If you simply wish to no longer rent to the tenant, or have a reason to stop participating in the Housing Choice Voucher Program, a Ninety-Day Notice should be utilized.
