    Bottom line. If he didn't pay rent you are allowed to evict him. Evictions deal with the right to possession only. If they didn't pay you rent, they don't have the right to possession. Good luck.

  • If you were served a 3 day to quit on a Friday when is the payment due?

    We payed half are rent on the 7th if the month and was served a 3 day to quit on the 11th. The 3 day to quit also had the late fees on there.

    Loc’s Answer

    I'm pretty sure if late fees are on the 3 day notice, then the notice is defective and the landlord will have to serve a new and proper 3 day notice. Good luck!

    Loc’s Answer

    Completely concur with Mr. Montoya. Your attorney should be handling this rather simple task. I would suggest that you speak with your attorney first about this issue. If he is unable to do the simple things, then I would suggest you explore other legal options. Good luck!
