Harassing a Tenant Who Doesn't Pay Rent
When tenants pay rent late or miss payments, the landlord’s options are to file for an eviction, to collect a late fee if agreed to under the lease, or to raise the rent. Usually, eviction proceedings are started with a “Notice To Quit,” which is a warning to the tenant that they may be evicted if they do not pay rent or pay for damages. Some states require this, and some even require multiple notices to quit before a landlord can evict a tenant. Nearly any other approach to evicting a tenant for non-payment of rent is illegal.
