How long does it take to evict a tenant in Tennessee?

Updated: Oct 16, 2020

The first step in the eviction process is for the landlord to send a dated, written notice that the tenant has 14 days to comply with the terms of the lease. If the tenant does not comply – you can make them aware that the eviction will take place 30 days from the date of the notice.

The eviction laws in Tennessee are based on what county the property is located in. Shelby, Davidson, Knox, Hamilton, Sumner, Montgomery, Blount, Madison, Bradley and Andersen counties are governed by the Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act, which is outlined in the Tennessee Code under Title 66, Chapter 28.

This code outlines all the pertinent information relating to landlords and tenants for those listed counties. If the property is located in a county that isn’t listed above, the eviction laws are governed by local law.
