Low-income individuals may receive subsidized housing from the government. In these cases, the individuals may have Section 8 vouchers that can be applied toward rent. Landlords should know that Section 8 vouchers do not necessarily protect a tenant from eviction, and an Orange County eviction attorney can assist you in removing a troublesome Section 8 tenant.
Landlords generally need to show cause to evict a Section 8 tenant. An Orange County eviction lawyer can explain to some common reasons to justify an eviction such as:
- failing to pay rent
- violating the terms of the lease
- damaging the premises
- violating other provisions of the lease
After showing cause, your Orange County eviction lawyer typically will need to get a court order to evict the tenant. This will require providing notice to the tenant of the proposed eviction, offering the tenant an opportunity to cure the condition, and hearing the unlawful detainer lawsuit in court.
In some cases, a landlord may also evict a Section 8 tenant even without case. For example, a landlord may simply not renew a lease with such a tenant. However, landlords still must be careful to work with an Orange County eviction attorney as they must comply with certain notice requirements even with the lease expiring.
