Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.


If it were me, if you have already given them a 3 day and it has expired without them paying rent, then I would go ahead and just file a new UD case based on that violation. That should be a cut and dried case because the tenant won't be able to show any proof that they paid so you will get a judgment. If the tenant even bothers to show up.


As an aside, in addition to being an attorney, I have also been a landlord for over 26 years...
