Unlawful Detainer

Unlawful Detainer

Unlawful Detainer Cases are all about speed and efficiency to Notice, Serve and File. To meet this demand, First Legal Network has created its own Unlawful Detainer Division within First Legal Network, its core Attorney Service group. Our team of knowledgeable experts will guide you throughout the entire process, start to finish.

In many Residential Cases the property may or may not be occupied; sometimes the tenant may even be unaware of an impending foreclosure. Under this scenario the First Legal Support Services - Unlawful Detainer Division can effect Service of Process and Post “Notice to Vacate Premises” or the “Notice to Quit”. Once complete, our Unlawful Detainer Division will expedite the Proof of Service to ensure a quick turnaround in preparation for the filing of the Summons and Complaint, formally beginning the Judicial Foreclosure Process if necessary.

For Commercial Properties, the process typically begins once the rental payment is past due or there is a breach of the lease covenant. This is usually handled with a 3 or 10 Day “Notice to Pay Rent or Quit” or “Notice to Perform Lease Covenant”. In most cases, a resolution can be reached once the notice is served and will not require the filing of the “Summons and Complaint”. The First Legal Support - Unlawful Detainer Division Team can support either scenario.

  • Faster response compared to regular civil litigation as a result of our multiple offices and nationwide coverage.
