EVICTION OF PUBLIC HOUSING/SECTION 8 TENANT.

December 19, 2023

EVICTION OF PUBLIC HOUSING/SECTION 8 TENANT.

Eviction is when a tenant is required to move out of the house. The process of eviction
for Section 8 tenants is the similar to any other tenants.
As long as the Landlord follows California (and any local) eviction laws, they can evict a
Section 8 tenant, as you would any other tenant, for non-payment of rent or other
serious or repeated lease violations.
The Landlord must advise the Housing Authority (HACA) at the beginning of the eviction
process by submitting a copy of the initial notice.
The Landlord can only evict a tenant for one of the "at fault" or "no-fault" reasons listed
in the law. "At fault" means the Landlord says the tenant has done something wrong
"No-fault" means the tenant has not done anything wrong, but the Landlord can still
require the tenant to move out.
A landlord who evicts a tenant for either an "at fault" or "no-fault" reason must first issue
the tenant with a written notice stating the reason for the eviction.
The Landlord cannot force a tenant to move out without giving proper notice. If the
Landlord wants the tenant to move, he must issue a notice stating what to do or what
not to do and a certain number of days to comply.
If the tenant does not comply with the notice, the Landlord must file legal documenta
known as "unlawful detainer" to be able to start the eviction process and must also
serve the tenant with a copy of the documents filed in the court.
