Hello guys, I have a situation and after 7 years of renting this is the 1st time I have someone give me issues about moving.
I have a tenant who moved in back in 09 (not sec 8 but was getting rail road mcr for 3 kids) so she had more than enough coming in. with the 1st month there was an issue with her money where it took weeks for me to get paid and that trend followed for about 4 months.
09 to now she owes me about 1800 over time. Even when her money was coming in on time from RRM she always had something that came up where she couldn't pay or had to skip a month and try to catch up. In the mean time I had to replace the roof and do some other major/minor repairs.
The last straw was she took my rent and loaned it to a friend who didn't pay her back. when I went to see her the story change to her Son was is in jail and used it for a lawyer. At that point I finally decided to Evict because she texted me and told me "Do what I need to do, she understands"
The same day I went to see her I also went to see some things I needed to repair, once she got the letter, she’s been making it hard for my contractor to get in to get the work done. Now she sent me a letter stating she’s not paying me until the repairs are done
What she wants done “ the living room/dining room has different colors” the living room has popcorn ceiling so you can see where a patch was made, kitchen sink need calking, living room floor need new panel, living room ceiling need repair and paint, all windows need to be replaced and a light switch recently stopped working”
(I’m not a slum lord, we painted the rooms again for her weeks after she moved in, replaced the kitchen sink and now she damaged it, the floor panels is the original that came w/ the house, it’s about ˝ inch off the floor b/c the house was once carpet) and none of these things was presented to me until now
I’m waiting for the Court now to give me my date. When I thought the payment issues was over we renewed her lease for the year ending in April 2012, both my lease states that late payments breaks the lease and that’s what she’s fighting against. I gave her the normal 60 days (ending around oct 22nd)
So I want to know from you guys would the Court Honor my original 60 days?
Would the court accept a Notarize letter from my contractor showing the dates he contacted her and she kept him from coming?
Any advice on what I should/may expect to happen?
Like I said all my past evictions never did I have any objections so after 7 yrs this is new for me
Thanks for reading
