eviction procedure (by Doug [TN]) Posted on: Jan 28, 2008 6:53 AM

TN Landlord/tenant act calls for 30 notice for non-payment of rent. subsequent filing and serving of detainer warrant consumes another 3-5 weeks to get tenant in front of the Judge, who gives them another 10-14 days to get out, followed by filing for writ of possession.....

Bottom line is that it is now 10-12 weeks later. Can I shorten the process by any means??? How about filing for detainer warrant perhaps a week or 10 days after the initial 30 day notice? So long as the court date is after the 30 day notice period as required by law, should the court have any problem with that? I am now modifying my lease contracts to waive written notice for late rent. Any other suggestions to speed up the process of eviction are welcome. Thanks Doug

u can talk to them.if they are decent people with no money u can offer 200 or 250 for them to leave.no bad marks on their credit.pay if they leave voluntarily without court.sometimes this works.explain if they are evicted it will stay on their record for years and years and may prevent them getting a rental or buying many years hence.good luck. --208.58.x.xx

Your FIRST notice is for the current month rent and then when the next month rent rolls around you file against them in Small Claims unless you can amend first case to include next month.

Filing the unlawful detainer and then in Small Claims for the next month has ALWAYS gotten them out and I get default judgements. --64.12.xxx.xxx
