    Default Evict?

    How does one explain "eviction" or write it in Spanish?

    I don't believe it's a cognate such that 'eviccion' would work (accent over the 'o') and a cheap, small dictionary that I use says 'desahuciar' which I never heard before nor does it sound right to me.

    Anyone?

    Hi, Zorro. Never heard of *evicción (I don't think it exists). "Deshauciar" is perfect, even if it doesn't sound right to you. Other possibilities: "desalojar", "echar a la calle".
    ;-)

    Default Evicción VS Desalojo

    Evicción does exist but I believe Desalojo is more common. However, I think in this case its a matter of what applies more to your translation.
    This is what Real Academia Española writes:
    Desalojar
    1. tr. Sacar o hacer salir de un lugar a alguien o algo.

    2. tr. Abandonar un puesto o un lugar.

    3. tr. desplazar.

    4. intr. Dejar el hospedaje, sitio o morada voluntariamente.

    But they also write:

    Evicción.



    1. f. Der. Pérdida de un derecho por sentencia firme y en virtud de derecho anterior ajeno.

    So, I conclude you really have to see what applies the most in this case.

    Hope it helps!!!!

    the noun is deshaucio; desalojo. And the infinitive is like the girls said: deshauciar, desalojar

    Hi Zorro,

    "Evicción" is perfectly valid in Spanish. It's the legal term for eviction, so I think you should use "evicción" if the term is included in a legal document, i. e. a lease agreement.

    hi, I would go with this term too. Evicción DOES exist, but is widely unknown.
    Los hombres son superiores a las mujeres porque Alá les otorgó la primacia sobre ellas. Portanto, dió a los varones el doble de lo que dió a las mujeres. Los maridos que sufrieran desobediencia de sus mujeres pueden castigarlas: abandonarlas en sus lechos, e incluso golpearlas.
    No se legó al hombre mayor calamidad que la mujer."

    Exclamation Desalojo vs. Evicción

    Hi there! In the context of leases, I would definitely go for "desalojo". In Argentina, that is the legal term we use to refer to "eviction".

    I looked up the term "desahucio" at the RAE website and I discovered that it actually exists. I don't know if you use it in Spain or in some other country. Perhaps, you could tell us which is the terminology you use in other Spanish-speaking countries.

    Please note that the term "evicción" does actually exist in Spanish, but it means something different. It's a contractual warranty a transferor grants when conveying property thereby warranting quiet enjoyment or good title to the property.

    Hope it's useful!
