Legal Q&A: Is the eviction process any different for a garage?


Question: Is the procedure for evicting a tenant from a garage any different than for a tenant who lives in a residential unit? Is delivering a notice to a post office box legally acceptable?

Answer: The eviction process is the same. The notice should be mailed to the post office box and another copy attached to the door of the garage the same day. Even though it may not be delivered, send another notice via mail, same day to the garage, since the code literally requires mailing and posting to the rented premises.

Question: Is there any way to impose a rent increase on tenants with a lease, or do you have to wait until the lease is expired? Can you raise rents on specific units and not all units?
