When you are a tenant, there are certain things that you need to keep in mind. One of those is the fact that landlords have a set of rules and regulations that tenants must follow. If a tenant breaks one of those rules, the landlord may be forced to take legal action. One such action is filing an eviction complaint form with the courts. In this blog post, we will discuss what an eviction complaint is and what happens when it is filed. We will also provide some tips on how to avoid getting evicted from your home.
