My First Eviction: Eviction Notices and Lessons Learned...

Demand letter, followed by eviction notice
followed by disconnect notice from power company.

A couple of months ago I wrote about how I was trying to work with one of my tenants that was struggling to make the rent. At the time it seemed that we had worked out a solution to allow him to stay in the house until the New Year and then we would part ways. However, that solution apparently did not work and the tenant decided to vanish into thin air along with the rent for December... 

We had agreed to reduce the November and December rent to let him stay in the house. But December rolled around and no check. I was able to contact him at first and he gave me the whole "check is in the mail..." line. I delivered and mailed the Demand Letter shortly thereafter (pictured).

Sure enough the 15th of the month rolls around, still no check, and now he is not picking up the phone, returning voicemails or text messages.
