The Iowa eviction process is starts when the landlord has either sent a notice to the tenant for a violation of their lease (nonpayment, noncompliance, or danger of abuse) or cancelling a month to month tenancy. If the tenant does not respond to the landlord's request and overstays the notice period the landlord has the right to enter into a forcible entry and detainer and follow the Eviction Instructions until the property has been repossessed.
