Civil Division - Evictions

<< Civil Division Home

If a person has lived in a residence for more than 30 days you should follow the eviction process to have them evicted. The first step in the eviction process is to serve them with a Three Day Notice to Vacate. The notice must list the person(s) being evicted, the reason for eviction, the address they are being evicted from, and the landlord information. View an example of a Three Day Notice to Vacate.

The Civil Division can serve the notice, all fees and deposit information listed above will apply.

The South Dakota Codified Laws regarding eviction are found under Chapter 21-16.
