If you are a Utah tenant who has been given notice that your landlord is terminating your lease, you should try to cure your breach by paying the rent or coming into compliance with the lease. If you do not feel like you have done anything wrong, you will just have to wait for your landlord to file an eviction action against you. You will receive a summons and you will have to file an answer to the summons, usually within 3 days. Once you file your answer with the court, a hearing date will be set and you and your landlord will go argue your sides.
Handling the eviction process alone in court can be intimidating. You may wish to seek the advice of an experienced Utah evictions lawyer. An experienced attorney will help you defend against the eviction and advise you on any rights you may still have as a tenant.
