Just thought I’d let you guys know what happened:
We posted the 3 day pay or quit on the tenants door yesterday, after attempting to deliver it in person. (They left when we asked for a face-to-face meeting.)
Half an hour after we dropped it off, The wife left a voice mail informing me that "we have never gotten a pay rent or quit notice, and we don’t expect to, so we’ll just leave!"
Great!
We’ll go by to check the house Monday morning to be sure that they’re gone.I was really worried that this was going to drag out, but it looks like they’re going to leave on their own. However, I DO plan to make an entry on their credit report to warn off future landlords. I don’t want them to do this to someone else!
Thanks again to everyone who responded!
Sincerely,
KRistin

If you follow your lease and state laws correctly, you can probably keep their entire deposit as liquidated damages.

Johnman,
Contact a credit reporting agency. The one we’re using does tenant screening as well as credit reporting. They charge a fee to have the info entered on the tenant’s report through the credit bureaus. In my case, I’m more than willing to pay the fee if it will keep someone else from having to go through this.
