1. If the tenant has not paid rent or fixed the lease violation within the given time frame, then the landlord can terminate the rental agreement and file an eviction lawsuit (forcible entry and detainer action) with the court. These lawsuits are typically filed in the small claims court of the district court in the county where the rental unit is located (Okla. Stat. Ann. tit. 12 § 1148.1). After the landlord files a petition and summons to begin the forcible entry and detainer action, the tenant will receive a copy of both documents. The summons will have the date and time for a hearing that both the tenant and the landlord must attend (Okla. Stat. Ann. tit. 12 § 1148.4). At the hearing, the tenant must tell the judge any and all defenses the tenant has to challenge the eviction. The judge will listen to both the landlord and the tenant and make a final decision about the eviction.
