My husband and I can, once in a while, get loud when we argue. Tempers run high and doors get slammed. He caused minor damage to a couple doors in our rental. He paid to have them fixed/replaced. We were separated for a short time and he recently moved back in. The lease states that an immediate eviction may occur if "an emergency situation immediately threatens either the safety of other tenants or threatens to cause damage that would exceed the rent for one year". Both of the doors were fixed/replaced for around $100. The landlord is demanding he leave the property and not return. Is that legal? I thought they would legally have to evict him.
Anyone can demand anything. It will take a lawsuit and a judgment for the landlord to be able to have the sheriff carry out the eviction.
