I rented a unit, received two NSF checks, one marked for deposit and one marked for rent. Prospective tennant moved in. June 5. Some promises to make good, however now tennant did not show up for the most recent meeting today.Can I start eviction?? This does not look good. I have only a duplex in Fargo that I rent and I share one of the units with a tennant.
Talking and receiving promises. Now there is no answer to my call and tennant was not home today from 6 AM to 8PM-- checking tonight.
If the tenant has not paid you, you have every right to start an eviction. You should get the process rolling as soon as possible. Make sure you follow the requirements of the statute of your jurisidiction.
