Eviction Process

Brittany Caldwell - Monday, May 23, 2022

Hi, I'm Brittany with Marchant Property Management, and today I'm going to be going over our eviction process. Marchant Property Management is located in Greenville, South Carolina, and we serve most of the upstate area in South Carolina. Our rent for our lease is due on the first of each month. Tenants have a grace period of the first through the fifth to pay rent. A late fee is added on the sixth, and evictions are filed on the 11th. At Marchant Property Management, we do file evictions on behalf of our owners for nonpayment of rent, and our property managers will also attend court hearings for nonpayment of rent as well. We can do the whole eviction process for you from start to finish.

How the eviction process works is we file on the 11th and then the court will serve the tenant the eviction notice. Once they have been served, they have a certain number of days to respond. If they don't respond, then we're able to file the writ of ejectment. If they do respond, they may ask for a hearing, which we would attend. Once the writ is filed, they have 24 hours to vacate the property. If they do not, then we would check the property, see that the tenant is still living there. And if they have not paid their balance in full, we would schedule a set out with the court. Once the set out is scheduled, all of their items are moved to the nearest public street, and then we change the locks on the property. Marchant Property Management will handle this from start to finish for our owners. We also file evictions for lease violations and other matters pertaining to our lease agreement if they are not followed. That is how Marchant Property Management eviction process works for Greenville, South Carolina, and surrounding areas. Thanks for watching.
