The good news is that Nestwell evicts less than 1% of all placed tenants each year. The bad news is that when evictions do need to happen, they can be costly and time-consuming. That’s why our affordable Eviction Shield Program covers the following headaches and fees for a low fee. 

However, on occasion things go wrong. A tenant loses their job, a loved one, or the occupants get a divorce. Whatever the reason, sometimes tenants can't pay their rent and refuse to vacate the property. When tenants don't pay rent and all of our communication and arrangements have failed, Nestwell has to forceable remove a tenant from your investment property.  

What Is Eviction Shield Program? 

In the event of an eviction/unlawful detainer, Nestwell will pay for your legal and court fees associated with the eviction. This can save you hundreds of dollars and reduce the hassle and headaches surrounding evictions. Evictions can be one of the most frustrating and challenging aspects of owning rental property. Nestwell also will attend all of the court hearing, pay for constable fees, Now for a low annual fee, Nestwell Property Management's exclusive Eviction Shield Program will pay for the eviction filing fees, court fees, service fees, legal fees, and constable fees. It's a win-win for our property owners!
