Eviction in Cleveland Heights

4 Replies | Cleveland, Ohio

Hello BPers,

Is anybody familiar with the eviction process in Cleveland Heights? Anybody knows about how long it takes to get a court date after filing? Is there a website where I can find info on the case? My case was filed 5 weeks ago, and still no court date. 

Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

 Yes, I believe you can check on the county docket. Cleveland Heights is one of the slowest cities around here. They are often "backed up." At least, that is what they always claim. How long was the tenant there when you owned it? Evictions are never fun and are always costly. I'm sorry this happened. Good luck to you. Hopefully, it goes fast and doesn't cost too much!

Thanks for the reply Tom! That’s what my PM told me. I don’t want to bother them to get updates, I thought there must be a site where I can find information. 

I don’t remember how long that tenant had been in the unit when I purchased it; I bought it in December of 2017. One tenant had been there for several years, the other just a few months. I should have that info somewhere, I’ll look for it. 

It is not all bad. That unit was rented under market price. I think now I can raise rent when we get it ready... thinking positively! :)
