My renter of two years is 9 days late on rent - what should I do? - Posted by Lib Cassin

I am not a very experienced landlord, but I have had the same tenant since I bought my duplex 2.5 years ago. He was always on time, until this year, and recently got married, and has been a few days late once or twice.
When he was late with his payment this month, due on the 1st, I called him and left a friendly message reminding him to pay up. So far, nothing and he is now 9 days late.
What should I do? Would anyone have a form letter that they could email me to let him know that I mean business. I seem to recall someone else having a similar problem and being advised to put a letter on his door?
Overall, he has been a good tenant (intel employee) but I do not want to let this go
Any suggestions would be helpful
Thanks a lot
