Who needs form UD-150?
Form UD-150 requests a trial for the party who wants to complain about an unlawful detainer. A landlord usually requests this kind of trial when they are not satisfied with tenants and have legal reasons for eviction. Tenants in turn use this form when they want to file a counter-request.
What is form UD-150 for?
If a plaintiff filled out this form according to all the requirements, the court is obliged to respond to the request and arrange a trial for unlawful detainer.
