Illegal Eviction Procedures in Indiana

Indiana landlords must follow specific rules and procedures when evicting a tenant (see the article How Evictions Work: What Renters Need to Know, on this site).   The state forbids landlords from taking the law into their own hands.

If you decide to sue your landlord for an illegal eviction, check Indiana law. (You’ll find Indiana rules prohibiting self-help evictions at Ind. Code Ann. §â
