There are two types of eviction cases: eviction only cases and eviction with back rent cases, where the landlord is suing for both return of the property and back rent. Eviction only cases are normally filed for non-rent related reasons, such as alleged lease infractions or that tenants stayed beyond the end of their lease term, though some landlords who are owed back rent forgo their claim and choose to sue for eviction only. Eviction with back rent cases indicate that rent may be owed, but there may also be additional non-rent related reasons the landlord is suing for eviction. Landlord claims make no distinction between tenants who could not pay rent and tenants who legally withheld their rent (for repairs or other allowed reasons), a fact that often only comes to light if tenants are able to assert their rights in court.
