Evicting tenants - how do I do that

I'm really sick about this, but I rent a small house to tenants who are behind in rent and trashing the place. I have been patient, given them time, worked with them to fix plumbing, electric, and even added private trash pickup and hauling to help them keep up with cleaning. But now we have signs of rodents, bad smells, and I dont want to lose the house.

I really hate to do this, and also I don't have the muscle. How do I get the law enforcement to serve them notice and if necessary force them out? How do I keep them from trashing the place further?

Usually it is easiest to higher an attorney that provides an eviction package. He/she can guide you through the process of evicting the tenant. You won't need to be the "muscle" as the Sheriff will do that if required.

Thanks scOtssr. I have started eviction proceedings, using an attorney and the sheriff. It's gotten nasty, but the house has to be kept in good repair.

I faced evicting a tenant once. I vowed I never would face that again, if I could help it.

Good news is that you are not alone when the law is on your side - Glad you are proceeding.
