The Eviction Records Search search is commonly used as part of a tenant screening process or to determine a persons' credit worthiness. An eviction notice is a court ordered action a landlord must use to remove a tenant from an apartment or room. Before a landlord can start an eviction, s/he must first give the tenant a NOTICE TO QUIT. A copy of a notice to quit is attached as Form A. This is usually a single piece of paper, signed by the landlord or his/her attorney, and delivered by a state marshal. It says that the tenant must leave the apartment by a certain day. It should give the reason for the eviction.
