Eviction Rules Update- What You Should Know

On Behalf of | Oct 18, 2021 | Firm News

We had yet another change in Minnesota eviction rules this month. As of October 12, almost all of the remaining eviction limitations were ended. Landlords can now evict for any reason, except, that in unpaid rent cases if a tenant has an application for rent assistance pending the eviction has to wait until the application is processed, and if the rent is paid the issue is resolved.
Landlords can evict for any other reason, lease violations, decision not to renew a lease, etc. Evictions are still subject to all of the pre-covid rules, proper notice, usually 30 days for non-renewal, sometimes longer based on the lease, notice has to be given before the start of the month, for most lease violation cases the tenant needs to have been given notice of the violation. Retaliatory evictions are still not allowed, the landlord cannot evict a tenant because the tenant called the building inspector.
Eviction has become easier for landlords, but, it is still a complex process, get good advice before you start the process, and, get advice about alternatives to eviction, it is always better, and almost always less expensive if you can get the tenant out without a court fight.
