Reasons for Unlawful Detainers

The law provides for both landlords and tenants who are faced with a variety of circumstances. It is always important to consider your lease or rental agreement. Both parties have signed this legal document and agreed to its terms, and it is therefore important that it is followed. However, when a situation arises where both parties can no longer agree, it is necessary to hire a skilled attorney to help.

While there are many reasons for unlawful detainers, the most common include:

  • Failure to pay rent or utilities in a timely manner
  • Housing pets or other people who are not allowed in the terms of the lease
  • Criminal activity in the house or apartment
  • Wrongful eviction due to discrimination based on age, gender, sexual orientation, or race
