Do you need to evict a tenant?

| Feb 22, 2019 | Landlord-tenant Law |

As a landlord in Missouri, there are moments in which you may run into potential legal issues with your tenants. There might even come a time when you believe their eviction is the best possible action you could take. Stephen A. Martin, attorney at law, is here to help if you ever need to evict a tenant.

Tenants can be unpredictable when faced with eviction. In some cases, they may file a lawsuit against you, feeling as though they are being unlawfully removed from the property. If this happens, you may need legal representation. That is not generally the first goal, however. Most landlord-tenant disputes are something that many may attempt to solve through negotiation first. This could still involve the use of legal professional aid, as they know the ins and outs of the law. Mediators may also be brought in to help mitigate arguments and allow parties to see from each other’s perspectives.

Not every dispute can be worked out, however. Every tenant has a different goal in mind, a different complaint, and a different perspective. The same can be said for you as the landlord. Deciphering what the best course of action is and giving you the tools needed to pursue it is the primary goal.

If you are a landlord currently facing a situation in which you feel evicting a resident may be necessary, you don’t have to go through the process alone.
