Ask a lawyer and get answers to your legal questions
Hello! I am a licensed attorney, admitted to practice in state and federal court. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating (click here for more info) so all that means is that you can count on me to help today.
I'm sorry to hear about your situation. The answer to your question is yes, you could advise them that they are on a MTM agreement. If they stay on the premises, then they they are giving their implied consent to the terms of the lease.
You also have the option to lock the tenant off the premises if you decide to evict them or not renew their rental agreement.
If you decide that you do not want them on the property, then you can send them a notice of non-renewal at least 30 days in advance.
Because I value input, I would like to know what other questions did you have for me today that I can help out with:-)?
Hi, just one moment...
Oh no problem. We can cancel the call. Let me type up responses to your questions.
1. It helps if you use the term implied consent in my legal opinion.
2. You can lock him out in VA if he doesn't move off the property.
3. You won't be able to sell the equipment. You can and are generally required to store and care for the property for about 30 days, notify them of where the property is, and arrange for a pickup.
What other questions did you have for me today about this?
Potentially, but for a breach of contract, this that you have a couple of options.
The quicker, informal option is to send a demand for payment There’s a site that I’ve used in the past where you can find a good template for advising of a breach of contract. It's a bit easier (and cheaper) than going through litigation and I have seen it be effective in the past. This website is also pretty cool because you can download the forms right after purchasing.

If this doesn’t work, sadly, the only other option is to either go through an informal mediation or file a lawsuit in your local court. If you’ve already sent a bunch of letters, then the truth is this is the only way to compel them to do anything.
You bet. Thanks so much!!
