Introduction

Most landlords and tenants in Wyoming enter into rental agreements with the understanding that both parties are expected to fulfill their obligations. When a tenant fails to fulfill the lease agreement, a landlord may pursue an eviction. Understanding the eviction process in Wyoming can help both landlords and tenants understand their rights and responsibilities.

Step 1: Serve Notice

When a tenant is not fulfilling their obligations, the landlord must first serve a notice giving the tenant a certain amount of time to correct the issue. The type of notice and the amount of time given varies depending on the offense. Wyoming Statutes Annotated § 1-22-110 provides information on the various notices used in an eviction process.

Step 2: File Complaint

If the tenant does not correct the problem during the notice period, the landlord can file a complaint with the district court. The complaint must include the tenant’s name, the address of the rental property, and the reasons for the eviction. Helpful information about filing a complaint can be found on the Wyoming State Bar website.

Step 3: Set Hearing

The court will then set a hearing date. The landlord must notify the tenant of the hearing date and provide proof of the notice. The tenant must appear at the hearing or risk a default judgment being entered against them.

Step 4: Final Judgment

At the hearing, the judge will listen to both sides of the dispute and issue a final judgment. If the court finds that the tenant is in violation of the lease agreement, the judge will issue a writ of restitution. The writ will order the tenant to vacate the premises within a certain amount of time.

Conclusion

Evicting a tenant in Wyoming is a complex process that can be time-consuming and expensive. It is important for both landlords and tenants to understand their rights and responsibilities and to follow the eviction process as outlined in the Wyoming statutes. Understanding the eviction process can help landlords and tenants avoid costly delays and ensure that the process is conducted fairly.
