One of the most unfortunate situations faced by a landlord or tenant in a rental relationship is a forcible entry and detainer (FED) action. In Oklahoma, an FED is more commonly known as an eviction. It is important to know that there are strict laws that govern the eviction procedure. Among them are the (i) Oklahoma Residential Landlord and Tenant Act found at Section 101 et seq. of Title 41 of the Oklahoma Statutes and (ii) Sections 1148.1 thru 1148.16 of Title 12 of the Oklahoma Statutes governing the Forcible Entry and Detainer procedure. Such laws were made to protect the rights of the landlord and the tenant. If you are a landlord or a tenant facing an eviction, it is IMPORTANT that you consult with someone who is familiar with the eviction laws and process. A procedural or substantive misstep can be costly or even illegal.
