I own a home rented to a woman with children that a portion of the rent is paid by our local HUD office. The lease ends today, May 31, 2008. I have a lease with an other group that begins in the middle of June, 2008. The current tenant understood the move out date on the lease and has been reminded verbally and in writing of the move out date and she had assured me that it will not be a problem. She as made no effort to pay the share of rent that is not covered by HUD. That was not a problem for me until yesterday. She called me with an excuse why she would not be able to move out on time. I just firmly stated that she needed to be out today and she replied. "Sue me". By not working to collect the balance of the rent I may have made things to comfortable for her and she is trying to stay. I have new people expecting to move in. They expect to move in shortly.I need every bit of time to get the home cleaned up for the new tenants. The current tenant has been very hard on the outside of the home and I expect the inside to be no better. The neighbors have complained to me that they suspect drugs are being sold from the house. One neighbor informed me that her house mate called the police or dog warden and reported that one of the children was engaged in a sex act with a dog. I thought the kid had bigger long term problems than the dog so I notified our local children services agency of the complaint and ask them to follow it up with the police or dog warden. What can I do to get them out immediately so the new tenants cam move in?39600.3656445949
