Eviction Effects

Eviction and how it affects you

Dear Tenant,

As you know, keeping your account in good standings is important. It’s possible that you many not know about or understand the ramifications of what it means to be the subject of an eviction proceeding, should your account enter into eviction status. Below is a list of easy to understand consequences a person will face as a result of a legal eviction:

  1. Eviction Court-This can be humiliating experience and also matter of permanent public record.
  2. Dispossession-You will be forcibly removed from the premises. This can be a humiliating experience and also matter of permanent public record.
  3. Judgment(s)-Your credit rating will be severely damaged. This may also result in:
    • A collection process until your debt is paid in full
    • Possible seizure of assets you may own, including bank accounts
    • Garnishment of wages
    • Notification of credit bureaus causing inability to qualify for lines for credit, including credit cards, car loans and mortgages
    • Notification of National Tenant Reporting Services causing inability to qualify for rental housing (Most quality rentals require credit & tenant screening)

We understand having difficulties paying your rent or complying with your lease agreement. We sincerely hope you will be able to resolve any problems and keep your account out of eviction status.

Sincerely,

Property Manager
