Yes they can evict you if they want. You need to speak with your landlord, offer to pay for damages, and be more careful in the future.

Yessindeedy. Tenant Damages the Property Here, it’s important to distinguish between real damage and “wear and tear.” Scuffs on the hardwood floor or fingerprint smudges near light switches do not qualify as damage. But if your tenant knocks out a wall or runs their car through a garage? That’s a different story. Keep in mind that this reason may or may not be valid if your tenant makes the repairs his or herself. In our garage door example, if your tenant picks out a replacement and clears it with you, then pays for the door and installation, you can’t very well kick them out for damage. That said, your tenant should not make any major changes or repairs to your property unless those changes are cleared by you or are covered in your lease agreement.
