Customer Question
My question pertains to...

My question pertains to a 3-day pay or quit form. To cut straight to the point, I have a subtenant who is always late on his rent by almost a month and has now stopped paying rent , but before I issue a 3 days pay or quit I need to know if I can legally do that since I am not the owner of the property. I do have permission to sublease, but the landlord has stated that anything to do with my subtenant is between me and that person.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?

It's in Idaho.

Lawyer's Assistant: What are the terms of the lease? Any issues related to maintenance or upkeep?

There are other issues that warrant me wanting him out, but the big one is the rent.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

The terms are very simple, he pays $400 a month and I take care of all the bills and of course he needs to follow the rules in the lease.

Yes if you are the tenant and they are the subtenant you can legally move forward with a notice to quit and an eviction order, without the need for your landlord to be present.

I hope that helps!

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.
