Removal of a tenant from property. Eviction may be lawful, pursuant to authorization contained in the lease; it may be warranted by breaches on the part of the tenant, such as nonpayment of rent, or by other factors such as expiration of the lease by its own terms. Unlawful eviction normally will give the tenant a right to damages and in appropriate cases a right to be restored to possession of the property. Also see constructive eviction.
