What happens if the tenant does not pay their rent?
If payment has not been made by the Guidelines outlined by state law, we will begin to follow the guidelines for the eviction process. We always proceed with the legal notices required for eviction regardless of any other factors. Whether or not we eventually have to proceed with a formal eviction depends on the specific circumstances. It is usually financially better, for all involved, if a solution can be worked out. If the tenant has experienced a one-time event which caused them a financial hardship, and we have had no previous problems with them, we will normally give them a chance to catch up, if there is reason to believe they can do so. If the tenant has demonstrated an ongoing pattern of late payments, broken promises and/or evasiveness, eviction is usually the best course of action.
