Disputes between landlords and tenants can take many forms -- from upkeep and repair issues to non-payment of rent and potential eviction. When a tenant fails to pay rent on a property, the landlord has a right to start Eviction proceedings. But tenants have rights, too. Unless you strictly follow the letter of the law in evicting a tenant, you can lose another month's rent and still be left with a non-paying tenant. A poorly handled Eviction can be the first step toward foreclosure. You must act RIGHT AWAY to protect your rights and your money!
