It’s every landlord’s nightmare: A tenant who can’t, or won’t, pay the rent. You’ve invested in your property. You are obligate to continue to pay taxes, insurance, a mortgage, and maintenance, and you depend on that income. You provided a home for your tenant and you have a right to expect that tenant to keep their end of the deal. Now you’re involved in a time consuming and emotionally draining eviction process. In the best situations, you will pay some legal fees and lose some rent. In the very worst situations, you could spend thousands in legal fees and lose half a year of rent before you get your property back.
