Step by Step Guide on How to Remove a Tenant in Ventura
Determine if there are any local tenant protections in effect that could complicate the process of removing a tenant from your home in Ventura.
Before beginning the process of removing a tenant from your Ventura home, always double check with the local jurisdiction to determine whether or not the local area has any special restrictions on tenant removals. A good place to check is with city hall and the housing department. If there are any local tenant protections in effect, be sure to follow the local rules. If there are no local protections in effect, you can generally follow the regular rules on tenant evictions at the state level.
Determine if the rental property is subject to the Tenant Protection Act of 2019 (AB1482).
AB1482 is a state law that was passed a few years back and created statewide tenant protections that went above and beyond historical landlord/tenant law. There are several exemptions to this law. If you meet one of the exemptions, then removing your Ventura tenant from the property is easier than if you do not meet any of the AB1482 exemptions.
Serve the Ventura tenant with the proper type of termination of tenancy notice.
There are different types of termination of tenancy notices, depending on the reason why you want the Ventura tenant to be removed from your property. Is it because the tenant isn’t paying rent? Is the tenant damaging the property? Do you want the property back for some other reason unrelated to the tenant’s fault?
Wait and see if the tenant complies with the notice.
If the tenant complies with the termination of tenancy notice, there’s nothing else to do. If the tenant does not comply with the notice, then the Ventura landlord will need to file what is known as an “unlawful detainer” at the courthouse. This is the eviction case where the landlord is asking the court for a judgment giving possession of the Ventura property to the landlord.
