Last month's rent (by Charlie Deng [OR]) Posted on: Jan 12, 2022 12:18 PM
Message:

This tenant is quite highly paid. But he refused to pay last month's rent after he gave 30 day notice, even with eviction possibility. Shall I evict him? And then go to the small claims court to force him to pay what he owes.

I would. He will then decide if itís worth it to have an eviction on his record. I donít put up with that nonsense, and there is no other way to guarantee he will actually move.

Treat him as any other non-paying tenant. --24.96.xx.xxx

Did you say possible? No rent received- notice then court action. Now it's in his court. Stop [playing part-time LL.

You have a rental contract-- that you abided by-- why are you now negotiating with tenant? --99.103.xxx.xxx

Over the years when I had this behavior I would issue a 3 day P or Q and they would pay. --99.23.xxx.x

Yes! He is not abiding by the terms of the lease, so start the eviction process.

Stop allowing your tenant to run your business. --198.136.xxx.xxx

quick question: how much does this tenant owe?

Not a trick but lets see who knows. --99.103.xxx.xxx

This tenant monthly rent is $1860. That is what he owes, plus late fees. He has put down $1695 security deposit. Not sure if he did any damage in the Unit. --134.134.xxx.xx

Hit him with an eviction notice and follow through and get a judgment,some high paying jobs would be in jeopardy if he had a judgment filed against him --72.231.xxx.xxx

He owes the next months rent also. Your contract I feel pretty sure has wording that when giving notices rent can't be in arrears. All funds must be current for any notice to be legit. Notices are due 30 days prior or 30 days from when rent is normally paid.

So you have a tenant not current and attempting to skip out owing at least 1 month rent. He owes rent and since it wasn't proper notice he owe next month also.

Just like you follow the law tenants can't just up and withhold rent the last month.

Our lease is specific. When giving notice-- yes even ELT notice it has to be done correctly. --99.103.xxx.xxx

Yes. Right now you know where to serve papers. I would file on a high end unit where they can pay but refuse to. Deposit in my state is not for last month rent. --172.58.xxx.xxx

Message:

Yes, you need to evict him. Two reasons:

1) Get him served NOW so you know where he is and the process server can get him before he runs off. Personal service is required to obtain a money judgment in many places.

2) He's already broken his word to you by refusing to pay rent. Why would you trust that he will leave on time? --108.230.xxx.xx

Every tenant I have had move out has asked if they could use the 'security/cleaning deposit' as the last month's rent. Everyone was told "NO, it's clearly stated in the lease that this is not an option." The reason they want to use the security for the last month's rent is because they want to leave you with nothing in the 'pot' for you to do repairs/cleaning because they already used it up as last month's rent. Thereby forcing you to take them to small claims to try to collect for damages and repairs. Never a good idea since small claims is fun, but the likely hood you will recover even with a judgement in your favor is minimal. Get that last month's rent and hold onto the security to use as it was intended. My very last tenant actually paid the full last month due and I had the security/cleaning to use. That was great because his daughter was 2 days into the next month and I deducted for those extra days. (long story of nice dad vs. horrible daughter) Was so nice to finally be able to fix things and then return a bit to the tenant. Probably will never happen again, but I was thrilled. --174.65.xxx.xx

I did file the eviction. But I had a typo in tenant's Unit number. Same typo mistake was made in the 10 day notice I served and posted on the tenant's door. Will the court require me to start the process anew? Or I can simply make an "addendum" to correct the typo?

In my area, magistrate would void the eviction notice. Has to be correct name and address.

Probably best to call the courthouse where your eviction cases are heard. I had s tenant who spelled his first name two ways. Transposed ae and ea. I was advised to put BOTH spellings on the paperwork. It went through with the 'aka'. Court clerk was very helpful in advising me. --174.65.xxx.xx
