I have a tenant who, besides being 3 months behind on rent for the 3rd time this year, is claiming he needs repairs done in the house and is refusing to pay rent until repairs are made. It took 3 weeks for him to let me in to see what needed 'repair', all that needs repairing is a few drop-ceiling tiles need to be replaced. Now he keeps stalling telling me he is not available to let me in to do the repair. Meanwhile, I need that rent to pay the mortgage, which I have now fallen behind on due to his refusal to pay. Also, his lease expired in September so he has been month to month since then. What can I do? Can he legally withhold rent while refusing to let me make repairs? How can I get him and his family out?
