Montana Eviction Process

To evict a tenant in Montana, the landlord must follow a detailed six-step process starting with filing an eviction notice and ending with sheriff enforcement if necessary. The process involves providing the tenant with notice of any lease violations, filing an eviction lawsuit, allowing the tenant to respond, a court appearance, issuing a writ of restitution if the court rules in favor of the landlord, and potentially involving law enforcement to remove the tenant. Each step adheres to specific legal requirements and timelines outlined in Montana's statutes.
