Title 55. Property and Conveyances [Repealed Effective October 1, 2019]
Chapter 13. Landlord and Tenant
10/14/2019

§ 55-217. (Repealed effective October 1, 2019) Applicability; right to terminate tenant.

The provisions of this chapter shall apply to all residential dwelling units as specified herein. The provisions of this chapter shall also apply to all nonresidential tenancies unless the rental or lease agreement provides otherwise. The right to evict a tenant whose right of possession has been terminated in a residential tenancy under this chapter may only be effectuated by the filing of an unlawful detainer action, entry of an order of possession, and eviction pursuant to § 55-237.1. The right to evict a tenant whose right of possession has been terminated in any commercial or other nonresidential tenancy under this chapter may be effectuated by self-help eviction without further legal process so long as such eviction does not incite a breach of the peace. However, nothing herein shall be construed to preclude termination of any commercial or other nonresidential tenancy by the filing of an unlawful detainer action, entry of an order of possession, and eviction pursuant to § 55-237.1.

Code 1919, § 5512; 2017, c. 730.
