We rent a loft to this chick. She pays rent on time. No issues thus far; she's been there almost a year. Today I got an email asking if I can send her an eviction notice so she can take it to some government funding office that will help her with rent. She was let go from her job last month and I guess hasn't found one yet. This is the first I had heard about her losing her job. Rent is due tomorrow. I don't think we really will have to evict her as I think her parents will buck up if she really can't pay and if this Gov't funding is a bust.
So H and are discussing what to write in this eviction notice. Do you normally charge a late charge/penalty before issuing an eviction? Do you have to give a certain amount of time? I'm thinking we should be more strict in the letter than we really intend to be just to fast track her application and to put a little fear in to her.
I'm a little annoyed that she left it until the day before to deal with this. Also, there are jobs here. Almost every 7 11 is hiring as are retail places and fast food places. Sure the high paying, good jobs are all snapped up but if I couldn't pay rent and had been unemployed for a full month I would be walking my ass to McDonalds.
We didn't do a very detailed lease agreement which we have totally learned our lesson, so no need to preach about that. When the lease is up or with any new tenants we will have this covered.
