The Law Office of David Piotrowski assists landlords with Valencia evictions. The primary goal of a Valencia eviction is to get possession of the property back into the hands of the landlord. The Valencia evictions process works as follows:
1. The tenant fails to pay the landlord.
2. A "3 Day Notice to Pay Rent or Quit" is issued.
3. If the tenant fails to pay within the specified time period, then an Unlawful Detainer (eviction) lawsuit is filed against the tenant in the Santa Clarita courthouse that handles evictions for that area.
4. The eviction lawsuit is served on the tenant in the Santa Clarita Valley.
5. If the tenant fails to respond within 5 calendar days to the Valencia eviction lawsuit (or slightly longer if the tenant cannot be personally served), then the landlord will seek a default judgment. If the tenant responds within the 5 days, then a court date may be set to argue the case in the Santa Clarita courthouse.
6. When the landlord “wins” the case, the proper forms will be filed and submitted to the sheriff who will forcibly remove the tenant from the property if the Valencia tenant does not voluntarily move.
7. Once the landlord has the property back in his possession, the landlord can change the locks and rent the house to new tenants.
