Tenants and Landlords Can Now Discover Their Eviction Rights at


San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/10/2013 -- Being evicted is a frustrating and humiliating experience. Evictions generally occur after a long struggle between the landlord and the tenant. The tenant may not be paying bills, for example, or tenants may be violating the lease agreement in other ways.

Evictions are complicated and, in some situations, illegal.

Across the state of Tennessee, landlords must give written notice of the tenant’s breach of the leasing agreement.

Once an eviction order has been delivered, the landlord must allow 30 days for the tenant to move out.

North Carolina eviction laws are similar, although landlords tend to have a stronger voice in North Carolina compared to Tennessee. North Carolina landlords can deliver any type of notice to the tenant (oral or written) and demand an eviction within as little as ten days – provided the tenant has violated some aspect of the lease agreement. In some emergency situations, landlords can demand an eviction within as little as three days.

In this case, the landlord needs to have proof that they delivered an accurate and detailed eviction notice – preferably in written form. Eviction notices must include the correct length of time as well as specific details about the breach of contract.”

If the tenant challenges the landlord’s decision, then the landlord may have to take further action against the tenant. In this case, both the and websites are very detailed in their descriptions of how to proceed with the eviction in a legal and responsible manner.
