how do i go about evicting tenants on a land contract? by the contract we agreed on and signed the tenants broke the contract by late payments and other breeches in the contract.
Lawyer: legalgems, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

I am sorry to hear this; for a land contract the owner must give notice to the tenant that they intend to intiate a forfeiture action; they have 10 days to cure; if they don't the owner can proceed;

please see:

https://www.ohiobar.org/forpublic/resources/lawyoucanuse/pages/lawyoucanuse-669.aspx

Basically the seller can try eviction if less than 5 years and less than 20% has been paid; otherwise they can foreclose if 5+years, or more than 20% has been paid.

relevant code here:

my written contract has no bearing in this?
Lawyer: legalgems, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

Yes, the contract would provide the basis for the forfeiture action.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
