I have given my tenant 30 days notice to vacate as

Customer Question

Hello,
I have given my tenant 30 days notice to vacate as I am moving in to the unit. I live in King County, Seattle area. She has not given me rent for May and told me that she is not going too. In our contract it says that after the 5th of the month she will owe late fees and that if the rent is not paid I can terminate the tenancy by a 14 day notice to vacate.
What can I do?

If she wont adhere to the notice, you need to file for eviction in court.

Practically, having landlord tenant counsel handle is suggested as can expedite eviction, fees are low, and can seek to recover the legal fees.

matindale.com is a good resource for that, as is the court clerk if you file pro se. Kindly rate me positively.
