How DIY Evictions Can Cost You Money in the Bay Area

Today, we’re talking about Do-It-Yourself evictions and how they can be more costly than hiring an attorney.

At MSB Property Management, we always recommend that property owners use an attorney. Mistakes can be very costly. They will cost you time and money. Your eviction requires strict attention to timelines and deadlines, and you need to file the right notices in the right courts in the right city. Location is important when it comes to evicting a tenant.

You also need to evict for the right reason. Attorneys are local experts in evictions and the laws that govern them. They know the rules and what city ordinances and county ordinances need to be followed. They can pursue the eviction on your behalf and guide you through the entire process.

You don’t want to have to start your eviction process again once you realize you’ve done something wrong or a judge has thrown out your case. The wrong notice will make a big difference. That’s why it’s important to use an attorney and far more cost effective than doing it yourself.

If you have any questions about evictions or you need help managing your own, please contact us at MSB Property Management. We’d be happy to help you.
