Filing for an eviction can be one the most stressful and difficult requirements of being a landlord. As a part of our management services, Cousin James management tries to minimize the need to file an eviction. However, if it is required, we will handle the entire process on your behalf. These are the usual steps we take to manage an eviction on your rental property:
- Step One: We prepare the required paperwork and documentation, showing the tenant has delinquent rent in violation of their lease.
- Step Two: We send the tenant a 3-day notice to vacate.
- Step Three: File an eviction with the proper court.
- Step Four: Attend court on your behalf and seek judgement for the case.
- Step Five: If required, file for writ of possession and meet constable.
In Texas, there is only one way to legally remove a tenant from your rental property and that is to win an eviction lawsuit. Even then, remember that an officer of the law is the only person who can carry out the actual eviction.
If landlords do not follow the rules set forth by Texas law when evicting a tenant, the eviction may not be valid. These procedures may seem bothersome, but they serve to ensure that the eviction is carried out in a justifiable manner so that both the landlord and the tenant are treated with respect.
Because the eviction process can be such a stressful situation, Cousin James Management can take care of the entire eviction process. Our team of experts can manage everything on your behalf and you can focus on other things less demanding, making property management easier and more productive.
