How much does it cost to evict tenants from my property?
Costs depend on the time and resources required to gain access to the property and remove the tenants plus their belongings.
Evicting a single tenant with a few personal belongings residing in a small one bedroom basement will be much lower compared to evicting multiple tenants with pets, residing in a fully furnished two story, four bedroom home with a garage packed full of belongings.
Each circumstance varies so we only ask for a nominal deposit to schedule the eviction. After gaining access to the property and assessing the situation, we will be in a better position to let you know if additional payment is required.
How long does the process take?
Once the Writ has been filed it will only take a couple of days to have the eviction completed.
