Resolved Question:

I am renting office space to a construction company doing road work in my area, they have been given bills for rental space and other services, yet they have not paid or been in contact with me as to when they will be paying thier bills. We do not have a written agreement other then what we gave them for what the rent and other services would cost. What are my options ? ie. locking them out of thier office. etc.

With no written lease agreement, they are considered "at will" tenants and therefore as month to month tenants. You can do two things...1) have them evicted, and 2) sue them for nonpayment of rent. You do not want to simply lock them want to go through the eviction process.
