This toolkit tells you what you need to know if you may be evicted because your landlord wants to take back possession of your home. This means your landlord wants to stop renting to you. This may happen if your landlord thinks you broke your lease, wants to end a month-to-month rental agreement, or thinks you have stayed after your lease ended. This might also happen after a foreclosure. This toolkit is not right for you if you live in subsidized housing, or if you are being evicted from a mobile home park.
For general information about what to do if you are facing this kind of eviction, read the Articles on this page. Review the Common Questions if you have a specific question. If you received a complaint and are facing eviction, use the Court Forms links for help preparing the forms you will need for court. Use the Checklist below to make sure you followed all the steps in the process. The links under Court Information will tell you about the court that will handle your eviction case.
