As a landlord lawyer, I work to help landlords file eviction notices and suits, and/or work with renters to get back on track. After the most recent Supreme Court decision to strike down the CDC’s extension of the federal eviction moratorium, the landscape of how to evict tenants has changed again. Being a landlord during the past year has been difficult, but hiring a landlord lawyer is the best insurance you can get under these new circumstances.
We know the circumstances surrounding the moratorium order created tensions that failed to build trusting relationships between renters and their landlords. This being said, landlords need guidance in how to best navigate the flood of eviction notices or working with their renters to get back on track. Hiring a landlord lawyer is the best option for this guidance.
As a landlord, if you choose to pursue eviction you have the right to bring an action to remove them from the property if they refuse to work with you to pay back rent during the moratorium months, especially if they refuse to leave voluntarily. This must be done through the court system, as neither Kansas or Missouri allow for self-help evictions. Preparing and serving proper notices, whether they are 3-Day Notices to Quit or 30-Day Notices of Non-Renewal or Default, is imperative to a successful eviction case in KS or MO.
A lawsuit is then filed by a landlord lawyer asking the court to order the current occupants of the property to remove themselves from the property, and if they fail to do so, the sheriff will arrive to escort them from the property. Landlord laws are complex and can be a nightmare for an inexperienced landlord.
