At this point, is rent still owing?
Legally, to evict the court will only do so if there is rent owing.
If he becomes current, the court wont evict
the fact he complains about repairs, is also not basis to evict
If he does not have a lease, issuing a 30 day notice ends his tenancy
and doing so has to defense
as opposed to the 3 day breach notice
the 30 day notice is best
since no defense to it
and separately sue for unpaid rent
to get him out and get your rent
Is that clear?
you need to adhere to that notice provision
but again, there wont be a defense
and you reserve your right to sue for the rent
so you get both possession and eventually the rent
