We hesitated to create this page on our website since we have only had to conduct about 10 evictions over the past 16+ years - this is due to the fact that we screen prospective tenants carefully or find solutions to problems short of evicting tenants. Full evictions can be costly - in terms of time and expenses. But in the event we need to evict a tenant, we will coordinate and orchestrate the eviction process.
Given the present economic climate we are living in, we have been inundated with phone calls from homeowners who have chosen to manage their own properties and are facing difficulties with tenants. Difficulties such as collecting rent, resolving bounced checks, or how to start the eviction process, etc. Due to these phone calls, we decided to create this page that links to the Tschetter-Hamrick-Sulzer Law firm that is reportedly the largest "eviction" law firm in the Denver-Aurora area.
Evictions typically take anywhere from 3 to 6 weeks. Evicting a problem tenant is not exactly as painful as you might have seen portrayed in the Hollywood movie "Pacific Heights." But the process can be painful and costly with the homeowner generally bearing the brunt of the costs that include court and legal fees, sheriff fees, and mover fees.
We have seen eviction costs range from $500.00 to $3,000.00 depending upon the amount of furniture or tenant property that needs to be removed from the home. We hope you find this information helpful. Need other help? Please give us a call. We are happy to assist!
