Evicting a Tenant for Being a Nuisance | Contact a Santa Ana Eviction Attorney

There are certain situations in California where you may be able to evict a tenant by only giving three-days notice. One of these situations may be if the tenant creates a nuisance or interferes with the rights or enjoyment of the property of other tenants. A nuisance is narrowly defined and you will want to talk to a Santa Ana eviction attorney to learn if the three-day notice period applies.

Notice of Evictions

In most cases, a landlord will need to give a month-to-month tenant 30 or 60 days notice of the eviction. In this time, the tenant may have an opportunity to cure the condition giving rise to the eviction. However, in some cases, the reasons supporting the eviction may be so severe that the landlord can evict the tenant by only giving three-days notice with no opportunity to cure.

A Santa Ana eviction lawyer can explain to you that one of these situations is if the tenant is a nuisance. Some examples of nuisance include:

  • Generating excessive noise and disturbing the peace of other tenants
  • Creating an unhealthy and unsanitary living condition
  • Making the premises unsafe such as by blocking fire escapes and exits

If you are evicting a tenant for creating a nuisance, you will have to be very specific with your notice. A Santa Ana eviction attorney can help draft the notice and help you through the eviction process.
