: around that would point out the letter here?
I'm not sure what you're talking about?
Clients? What kind of activity? Has there been any court proceedings?
There are a variety of laws desingned to evict tenants committing
certain illegal acts, or engaging in a nuisance. In most cases it
would be civil issues to evict the tenant for the illegal activity.
(the illegal activity would have been prosecuted independently
as a criminal matter). There are also situation where landlord
are put in situation where they must seek a tenant's eviction,
and even in some cases where the tenant can be evicted even if
it was a family member who did the activity.
