As soon as you know that the tenant has not paid rent, you may give him or her a Notice of Termination. If the tenant does not pay rent or move out by the date on the Notice, you can file an application for eviction with the Landlord and Tenant Board. This entire process takes about two weeks. After the application has been filed, a hearing is scheduled. The hearing occurs about three weeks after the application has been filed. If you are successful and obtain an eviction order, the tenant will have about ten days to comply with the order. If he or she does not, you must file the order with the Sheriff’s Office, so the sheriff will forcibly evict the tenant. This eviction takes another two weeks or so. In total, from the time you issue the Notice of Termination, the eviction process can take between 5 and 8 weeks.
