What proof do you need to evict a tenant based on care of property? I read that a lease will usually state that tenant is responsible for any damage done to the property by their children, guests, or pets if it is more than “normal” wear and tear. The law requires tenants to be responsible for the proper care of the landlord’s property even if your written lease contains nothing about this or if you have an oral lease. Under the Anti-Eviction Act, they can be evicted for destroying the landlord’s property. What evidence needs to be presented to have this occur if the tenant refuses to let the landlord in with notice for an inspection during the course of the lease?
