Tenants won''t leave property - don''t pay
Just need some advice… .

We have tenants in our house, they always pay their rent late and so we decided to give them a months notice and evict them. At the end of the month they did not move.

They are now telling us that we have no right to evict them and that they don’ t have money to pay us rent and he doesn’ t know when he will.

I hope maybe you can help. We contacted the sheriff of our town but he says he can only go evict him if the court orders him to so we were thinking about going to the court and opening a case against him, only problem is this all costs money.

Please help with some advice if you can.
