Both legal processes ask the court to order an individual to vacate property, and both types of lawsuits are based on the defendant (the occupier) having some sort of interest in the property.
However, there are important differences between evictions and ejectment/unlawful detainer actions. The distinguishing factors between these two procedures is the presence (or lack of) a landlord-tenant relationship, and competing interests between the parties in the case.
