I am sorry to hear about your situation. Can you please tell me:
1) What is the reason for the eviction? Did she stop paying rent? Or, why do you need to evict the tenant?
2) What exactly do you wish to know about the process?
This is not an answer, but an information request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. Thank you in advance.
It is not that a landlord cannot use the eviction process. However, if the property is not registered, then the landlord may be slapped with a fine for not having a proper permit/certificate/license for the tenancy. So that may be the primary issue there. However an eviction may still be done if needed.
According to MN, a landlord may evict due to:
Being rude is not enough to be evicted. Nor is smoking (unless smoking is prohibited). But marijuana use is illegal, and thus, may be grounds for eviction. The problem is proving it. Assuming the landlord feels they have a case, they can give a 14 notice in writing to the tenant to leave due to marijuana being on the property, and if the tenant does not leave, they can be evicted via the Court.
