He wanted to move in fast so he gave me partial payment Dec 22-31 08 Just started and new job in Sales and opened up a new bank account. His rent was due the first of the month the latest was the 3th. In Jan I did not get his rent money of $700 until after midnight on Jan 12th I let it slide do to new job, was paid on Jan 9th Bank had his check on hold for two days Jan 9th was a Friday so on Monday January I went to his bank and they said had to wait one more day. Then the need of January coming around I told Kevin do not forget your rent is due by the first of Feb. He said" that is going to be a problem I get paid on the 9th.

You should sue him in small claims court for the month of rent outstanding if not paid, that being march along with any damages due. You can serve him at his last known address if he has not provided a new one and cant gather it in on inquiry

I told you he gave me a notice then wadded it up and threw it in the trash bin that is not a proper notice. So no he did not give me a proper 30 day notice I know this and I am not a lawyer
Expert:  INFOLAWYER replied 5 years ago.
If notice was given in writing but then thrown out it creates a question of fact as to whether he intended to withdraw is notice or not. Given his departure thereafter, a court is not likely to hold him liable beyond the 30 day notice period and that is what you reasonably should pursue as rent.
