Franklin County Eviction Filing Process

Ohio Landlord's Guide to Evictions

You must be the owner of the property or an attorney representing the owner to evict a tenant. Renters must contact their rental office or landlord.

You must obtain two (2) forms: a Notice to Leave the Premises and an Eviction Complaint form. These forms are available at ohiolandlordtenant.com and at Graham's Office Supply located at 268 S. 4th Street (Main and 4th). Their telephone number is (614) 221-4889.

You must complete the Notice to Leave the Premise form giving the tenant three (3) full business days (excluding the day you give it to them) to leave for non-payment of rent. For any other reason, you must give the tenant thirty (30) days to leave. Make a copy of the notice, give one to the tenant and keep the other to file with the Court.

NOTE: "The Notice to Leave the Premises" should contain the following paragraph boldly and conspicuously: "You are being asked to leave the premises. If you do not leave, an eviction action may be initiated against you. If you are in doubt regarding your legal rights and obligations as a tenant, it is recommended that you seek legal assistance."

To file an eviction case, you will need:

    A copy of the Notice to Leave the Premise
    The original complaint form
    Include accurate and complete information in caption and body of complaint form,
    Tenant(s) name(s) spelled correctly, address complete — Street, Avenue, etc. North, South, etc., Zip code accurate
    Two (2) additional copies of the complaint form for each tenant that you are evicting
    $126 filing fee

Please fill out the forms clearly and legibly.

A hearing is scheduled fourteen (14) to twenty-one (21) days from the date of filing. If you have any additional concerns or questions, please feel free to contact:

    Legal Aid at (614) 224-8374
    Columbus Bar Association at (614) 221-4112
    Or consult with an attorney

PLEASE NOTE: IT IS NEITHER ETHICAL NOR PERMISSIBLE BY LAW FOR A COURT EMPLOYEE TO GIVE LEGAL ADVICE.
