13 Just Causes for Eviction Under the TPO

 13 Just Causes for Eviction Under the Tenant Protection Ordinance (TPO) are as follows:

This experience told me a couple of things. First, laws and practice are complicated. You should let professionals handle them for you. This is like that you let a doctor treat you and a mechanics fix your car. Second, professionals know what they are doing. You have to have leap of faith and trust them and let them do the job for you. Eviction Service Center is a such professional team that is highly experienced and effective in matter of evictions. They have helped me and the community at large. I have recommended them to my friends. I will definitely ask their help in the future.
