You’ve had a tenant renting your property and they have been paying on time every month until now.  To make matters more frustrating, they are not returning your calls.  You have no idea what to do, you don’t live close (maybe even out of state) but you do know that they can be evicted for not paying the rent.  What do you do to get that started?


Before you can begin the eviction process, you will need to deliver a 3 Day Notice to Pay of Quit.  You can Google this form and find it online.  On this form you will need to fill out the tenant’s name.  You want to make sure you list all tenant names and also make sure the names are all spelled correctly.  You will state the county the property is located, the month of rent that is due and the amount of the past due rent.  You will also need to determine the due date.


The due date is determined by how the 3 Day Notice is delivered.  If the notice is personally delivered to the tenant or the property, the rent would be due 3 business days later. Make sure not to count weekends or federal holidays. 



If you mail the notice, the countdown should not begin until the date the tenant receives the notice.  You then have to allow an additional 5 days for the tenant to mail the rent to you.


Once the allowed time has expired, then you can contact your eviction attorney to begin the eviction process.

Not sure what the process involves in your area, but it is a difficult process here. The rights of the tenant are heavily favoured, and the landlord has few.. It is very unfairly balanced...

Many judges look at landlords as the bad mean wolf, and unfortunately when landlords and/or property managers cut corners and do subpar management, they will get treated as such.  Experienced property managers and experienced landlords work harder proving we did everything we were suppose to.  Sadly this is where the past is actually hurting our present.
