I am having a problem with a tenaunt. They where arrested for drugs, in Janurary and have not paid the rent. He is due in court soon, and trying to find out what my options are. I am new to being a Landlord.

Move on, find another tenant and check for their background. Forget the rent they did not pay as they have cases to settle in court. I hope you find good tenants next time.

I would of called the police or call your city hall and ask what you can do about this. Clearly you do not need a problem tenant as you risk problems with your property and loosing other tenants. This is 2yrs old posting so I am hoping things were resolved with a good outcome.

I would check with the local law enforcement and see if they can assist. Otherwise I thing you have to go the old fashioned way. Give them written notice, and then have them served with eviction papers.

you can go to court with your tennent to cancel the lease...my dad did that...its the fastest way i think....
