Hello again and good evening,
and I want to know since I emailed it to her on the 9th
You emailed what to her? a notice to pay rent or vacate?
And how would her race come up as long as you are following proper procedure?
Ok, I didnt' see your attachments earlier... just a minute..
Ok, the tenant will have grounds to contest any action if you didn't either hand them a paper copy of the notice, or post it on their door, or mail it certified and first class mail.. Email isn't considered legally proper notice..
But putting that aside if the tenant doesn't raise it.. If you sent the notice both first class mail and certified, and the time has elapsed, then that would be fine for notice. Just have the certified receipt handy to use as proof that you sent proper notice..
As for her accusing you of things...tenants always try to throw up smokescreens to keep from being evicted... you are being discriminatory, the place is a dump and everything needs to be fixed, you aren't following the law... I have heard them all... The tenants rarely just say "Yes, I owe you money and acknowledge it and just can't pay". They always try to make it your fault they are getting evicted.
So always just keep calm when dealing with them and respond like a teller at a bank....polite, but always business.
I am not sure how to interpret that follow up as it is addressed to someone named Erin and is dealing with a church, a partition action and your late sister.. It doesn't reference anything regarding this tenant or her failure to pay rent so I think it might have been the wrong attachment..
A couple things... I would call it "cancel" or "void" the lease, rather than rescind... Rescind is to recall an offer...so that really isn't want we are discussing.
And it is minor, but the Protecting Tenants in Foreclosure Act was strictly for foreclosures passed by Obama, and it expired the end of 2014, it wasn't repealed.
Minor things... but I am kind of a stickler for details..
The rest of it looks fine where you are detailing how you come up with what she owes...
Again, thanks very much for the positive rating and very generous bonus....
Have a great afternoon!
