First Tenant Post Eviction

2 Replies

Hey everyone, I just had my first tenant ever and he quit paying after two months. I work with a bunch of busy attorneys and I got enough advice on how to properly evict him. Now he is gone but still hasn’t paid. So how does this typically go down? Am I just out of luck? I would rush to file a claim in small claims court but I don’t exactly know where he is located now. Any help would be appreciated!

I’m a newbie here but it sounds like the guy saved you time and attorney/court fees. Hopefully he didn’t damage your property. I’d check the tenant abandonment laws in your state. If enough time has passed to consider the property abandoned I’d focus on getting it ready to go for the next tenant.
