Thanks so much for your patience. I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Usually, the easiest method is to send the tenant a notice that includes a) the portion of the lease agreement that says they will keep the place in livable condition and that if they violate a city ordinance they can be evicted and b) a notice that they must leave the property within the alotted time. You could opt for c) which could suggest that you will take them to court and have the sheriff throw them out (using nicer words); however, that's optional. Just make sure that you mail him a copy and that you nail a copy to his door as well so you can ensure that he received it. I would also recommend email as well. I would also be prepared that he will not have a chance to get all his stuff off the property so you may want to include d) which offers suggestions for places where he can easily have his junk stored.

What other questions did you have for me?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
