Draft a written agreement with what you want, and a STEEP financial penalty if not honored by the tenant. Present it to the tenant and wait while she signs it. If she refuses start your eviction. --71.196.xx.xxx

You guarantee that she will be out by evicting her.

She's already behind on rent. If she stays, she only is out an oral agreement, and you're out still more money.

Just begin eviction and note that the unit may not be available for a while during the process. --71.218.xx.xxx

I read stuff like this and just shake my head. Landlording is a business, not a hobby.

You are treating it as a hobby. Very poor landlording... --66.28.xxx.xx

I can guarantee that she WON'T be out by the 1st.

Evict her!

This is a classic Tenant fairy tale.

Don't you believe it!

Mantee has it right.Everything in writing. At times like these those Notices you should be able to put them outta your ear on the spot. Keep some blanks in your car. If it gets to court you will need that paper trail. Without it you are sunk. Those notices are part of your IOU's for the future to get your $ back. Collecting on a judgement is a whole nother thing.

Start the eviction process, you will be glad you did. So will other LLs in the future. --165.139.xxx.xxx

Start the eviction process!!!! I have heard this story many times, its usually just another way to manipulate you.

But BEFORE you start the eviction process, play nicely with her and ask to her sign a "release form" stating that she will leave on a certain date.

Your LL/tenant board should have the form on their website. If a tenant completes this form, it is much easier to evict them if they dont leave on time. --74.12.xx.xxx

Start eviction, in WI even starting eviction will show up on CCAP. You can tell them you will file if they dont cough up cash but it probally wont work (meaning they wont give it up).

At least with eviction filed, the next landlord wont have to get burned. --66.84.xxx.xxx
