Kasa Li, Home Owner in Sacramento, CA

Can I, as his agent file a eviction case on the court ? If the case comes to trail, can I represent him in the court? Can I, as owner’s agent file?

Asked by Kasa Li, Sacramento, CA Mon Aug 6, 2012

a The house is under my brother's name. He is living in outside of USA. I signed the rental lease with the tenant and the lease with Section 8 as agent for him. Now the tenant breached the lease. She has unpaid partial rent, does not pay the utility bill, having 8 dogs in the property. (Only allows one dog) I have an authorize paper from my brother.
Can I, as his agent file an eviction case on the court?
If the case comes to trail, can I represent him in the court?

Yes, a property manager can execute the eviction process. But, like most issues related to tenancy, you need to make sure that you provide the notices correctly. I always recommend that you go to the classes offered by the Rental Housing Association. If not, it might be easiest and cheapest to just hire an attorney to make sure it's done right the first time.
