Customer Question

It's a very long story, but 3 years ago I allowed a friend of mine to move into my basement and she said she would pay me $500/month. During these 3 years, she has paid a total of $6,030 with a balance of $11,695 (a time it was raised to 600/month since her daughter moved in, too). She is (hopefully) moving out on November 6. I have written her a notice and was wondering if you could look at it for me to make sure I am being legal. -Phyllis
JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: Virginia
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: No, nothing. All I have are her texts and emails of her date moving out.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: It's become a hostile environment on her part.
