Constructive Eviction – is a more creative form of eviction that the landlord may employ. But this needs to be done carefully as the tenant can either take remedial or legal actions. Constructive Eviction is when the landlord forces the tenant to leave by making the living conditions of the property unbearable like cutting off utilities or locking the tenant out. In both cases, the tenant can remedy the situation at his expense and file a lawsuit against the landlord. This type of eviction is not very common and the landlord will have to take legal advice before resorting to this. The tenant has several legal options open to him in case he is forced to leave in this manner.
