Tenant Eviction in Costa Blanca

When you buy a house, whether it’s for living or renting, it’s an investment that requires a lot of organization. Renting your property can be an important source of income. Most landlords consider themselves fortunate to have responsible and communicative tenants on a long-term basis.

Unfortunately, not all tenants are the same. In today’s market, there are also many reasons why you may need to evict your tenant. Things like non-payment of rent, lease violations, property damage or illegal activity on the premises can be good reasons to evict your tenant. With solid evidence and legal representation, you are very likely to win your case.

But, there is always a chance that the tenant can win. Read on to learn how you can protect yourself and your property during the eviction process.

    What are the steps for evicting a tenant?
    When you rent your home, the hope is that your tenants will treat the space with the same respect as you do. Even if you have a good relationship with your tenants, it is important to remember that renting is a business.

    Understand and protect your rights. It is important to know the law when writing a lease. At CLF International Lawyers we will create an effective and responsible lease for you, so that you can avoid any conflict with the tenant as much as possible.

    It is important to remember that removing the tenant’s belongings or changing the locks without an official eviction has been filed is completely illegal. There are many reasons to evict a tenant, but in general they include not paying rent, violating a lease (such as pets or illegal substances), or causing significant damage to your property.

    Before you rush, talk to your tenant and explain. The eviction process is long, and if you can correct the problem immediately, it is definitely the easiest way. Don’t give your tenant the opportunity to make the same mistake twice.


    How can a tenant win an eviction?
    Even if the proper documentation and legitimate reasons work in your favor, it is possible to lose an eviction case. The most common reasons for a landlord to lose an eviction are

    Not settling out of court. Going to trial can increase your fees, cause you to lose money, and cause you unnecessary stress. It is best to settle out of court whenever possible.

    At CLF International Lawyers, we recommend that you take care of your conversations, notices and leases with your tenants.

    Accept partial payment of rent. Once you have accepted even a partial payment from the tenant, you lose the right to evict them. Do not accept any money from the tenant unless it is the full amount and you intend to cancel the eviction.


    What to do if a tenant wins?
    If the tenant wins the eviction, they have the right to remain in the property. The court will decide how to proceed in each case. Possible outcomes could include:

    Court orders may require the landlord to pay the tenant’s legal fees.

    The landlord may be liable for additional fees paid to the tenant depending on the judge’s decision – and whether you followed the proper legal protocol for eviction.

    The best way to ensure that you do not lose an eviction case (or end up owing money to your tenant) is to follow our guidelines and seek advice from our legal team.
