Yes it can. Check your state code for the specifics, i’m sure they all have procedures for this. www.findlaw.com is a good place to look. There probably will be something like a written notice and not less than 30 days after receipt of notice you could evict if its not fixed. Unless he is a real deadbeat and you are looking for a reason to get him out i wouldn’t bother, just take it out of his security deposit when he leaves. If he fought you, would a judge throw them out because the kid stained the carpet?..I dunno. Would be interesting to hear from someone that has served a “fix it or get out letter”.
