Tenants are not paying on time and always an excuse about lack of money. They are getting the utilities shut off because they can't pay both. I feel that it's just a matter of time before I will not get the rent. I'm single female left with house after a divorce and just making the mortgage. The house is underwater and I can't sell it yet, waiting for the market to increase. I need to know what I can do to protect myself.
The tenants do not care the best for the house, front door was off hinges, I got a new door installed. They use a washing machine that my plumber disconnected at my request. I feel if I approach them on this or other matters they will retaliate. And them I'll have no rent.
I would like any help I can get.
