Eviction Notice in Hamilton

The first step is to confirm that you have actually received an eviction notice, also called a Notice to Vacate. For the City of Hamilton the notice should come from the Hamilton Sheriff’s Office, it can be mailed or delivered to the property.

The notice must specify the exact date and time for the eviction of all occupants from the property. You can only be legally evicted by a sheriff. Documents from a lawyer or lender demanding you to vacate are not enforceable.

The most effective method to stop an eviction is to pay the mortgage lender off in full. Unfortunately, most people usually do not have the money to pay the amount in arrears. Property owners also have the option to file a Statement of Defence or a Motion to delay the eviction. These legal options may help the homeowner avoid or delay the eviction for a period of time. The problem with these legal options is that they can be extremely expensive and may not work. We do not recommend that you file a Statement of Defence or Motion until you contact us.
