The length of time it takes to evict a tenant varies according to the state, and the reason for the eviction. Each state will specify the length of time a landlord is required to allow the tenant to correct the problem (pay back rent, remove the pet from the property, etc.).

It is also important that all the procedures that are outlined in the law are followed very carefully. Small mistakes in paperwork can often mean lengthy and costly delays, including having the case thrown out and needing to begin again.  It’s wise to consider the use of an attorney in the eviction process.

The entire process can take as little as 20 days, or as long as several months.
