We own rental property in Kansas City, Mo. Our tenants are in month nine of a twelve month lease, but have not paid rent the last two months and do not respond to any written correspondence or phone messages.
Suit for rent and possession. Use the search function and find an experienced landlord attorney.
The answer above is only a general statement of the law and not intended as legal advice. It is your responsibility to retain a lawyer to analyze the facts specific to your particular situation in order to give you specific legal advice. It is not meant to create an attorney-client relationship. The choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely upon advertisements.
Why would they pay if they are getting a free place to stay with no consequence? Time to bite the bullet, hire an attorney, and file a tent and possession case.
My comments are general in nature, are not legal advice as to your specific issue, and do not establish an attorney-client relationship. Disregard this solicitation if you have already engaged a lawyer in connection with the legal matter referred to in this solicitation. You may wish to consult your lawyer or another lawyer instead of me. The exact nature of your legal situation will depend on many facts not known to me at this time. You should understand that the advice and information in this solicitation is general and that your own situation may vary. This statement is required by rule of the Supreme Court of Missouri. Despite AVVO's statement that you can get "free legal answers," the information I provide on AVVO does not constitute legal advice.
