What is an eviction?

An eviction is a court judgment giving a landlord permission to have a tenant removed from their home because the tenant has broken their rental agreement. To have a tenant removed, the landlord must take the tenant to court.
Dealing with eviction can be difficult. Different laws and procedures can apply based on the type of property you rent, and the process that your landlord and the court must follow is complicated.
