Ohio Eviction Process

Evicting a tenant in Ohio involves several legal steps. First, provide a written eviction notice with specific legal language. Serve it via hand delivery, posting, or certified mail. Wait for the tenant's response; if they don't comply, file a complaint with the local court. The court serves the tenant, and a hearing is held. If the court rules in your favor, apply for a writ of execution. Finally, repossess the property after the tenant vacates.
