A general term for forcing a tenant to vacate the owners premises. State laws have very specific substantive and procedural requirements for landlords who want to evict a tenant from their property. For example, each state has its own tenant notice requirements, specific eviction forms that must be used, and service of process rules concerning giving the tenant sufficient legal notice, for example, to pay or quit, all of which must be strictly followed or the eviction will be judicially deemed invalid.
