Randy, you are correct! Unless you want to keep the Tenant, don’t accept a dime ! Lots of times I issue notices and accept rent, but they are people who have extenuating circumstances and I feel I can trust will adjust their payment style. Sometimes a 5 day notice serves as a “wake up call”. “Don’t screw with me, cuz I mean business”.
I have a guy right now, rent is 800/mo. I went to court, and unfortunately took my attorney. We agreed outside court in the hall that Tenant would come current with rent by past MOnday,and be out by Feb 15. I have called my attorney all week. I mean sometimes every hour, and he won’t talk to me !! I don’t know if he got the 2000.00 or what! I am so stinkin Peeved! I have an appointment with a new attorney on Monday. I am not sure how this will all come out, but I am outraged !
