The average attorneys' fees for a residential eviction filing from the beginning until the Sheriff's Deputy removes the tenant are under $200 for conventional uncontested non-government subsidized evictions for non-payment of rent.
Costs are additional and vary by county. Costs consist of the county filing fees, the costs of the sheriff or private process server to serve the summons and complaint and if necessary and the cost for the Sheriff's deputy to remove the tenant from the premises.
In the event the case is contested or the tenant files a counter claim, the attorneys' fees and costs may increase.
