Landlords dealing with non-payment tenants

Often tenants will promise to pay in “a couple of days” or “next week” or “as soon as I get my paycheck.” These are typical non-payment excuses we hear all too often.

Don’t wait! If a tenant is behind in rent it is likely that he will never become current. That is why you must begin the process of eviction immediately.

The first step in evicting a tenant is to serve a 3 Day Notice To Pay Rent on your tenant.

You have to make sure that you fill out the entire Notice properly because an improperly completed Notice may delay the eviction by weeks or months.

Normally the tenant has 3 days to pay the rent.

If the tenant still refuses to pay the rent the next step is to sue the tenant in court.

Only by filing a lawsuit can you evict a tenant. You will need an experienced attorney on your side to regain possession of your property and get a money judgment against a tenant without delay.
