I am the landlord. After inspection of the property, it was discovered that the occupants had made many alterations (without obtaining permission) which result in many repairs that are needed. Additionally, the occupants installed bolts on the doors without permission, thus, allowing themselves to lock themselves inside the property. After the inspection took place, the tenant made false allegations about the inspection visit. As per the lease, the tenant had an opportunity to purchase the property, but since they didn't, I listed the property for sale. The term of the lease has now expired, and the tenant is now on at-will monthly basis. Now the tenant has retaliated by refusing to pay rent for the property, therefore we gave 30-day notice, and will likely need to file an eviction. Typically how long does an eviction take to get the occupants out of the property? I need to sell the property, and the occupants are very hostile. The realtors are also now nervous about showing, and even keeping the property listed for fear of the occupants making up false allegations against them. I just want this tenant out of the property since he cannot be trusted to have a landlord/tentant business relationship with. Thanks for your advice.
