My question involves an eviction in the state of: California
Hi, I wanted to start off that I am going to evict this person. We did the three days pay or quit because she is behind rent already and we are hoping and expecting for her to not pay we also expect it (shes been ignoring and making excuses when it comes to pay rent). We went to the three days pay or quit because it also will be fast to start the eviction (if we give her the 30 day notice we have to wait). She hasn't lived in the property so long ago and its a lesson (for my dad) to scan people more often before letting them in. Now I have some questions first:
If the tenant fails to ignore the fact its obviously a win right (we took photos with the date of taping the 3 days pay or quit also mailed the card via tracking number). I know you don't have to, but believe me this person does whatever it takes to ignore.
Second what are the chances to winning the case smooth and fast? Since we also have other issues we will bring up in the case (damage to the property by the outside took pictures). Has apparently more people inside the property than herself (which also breaches the contract).
Last, but not least can she use her little child as a defense? For her the judge to feel sorry not to kick her out?
This tenant is trouble and basically we want her out fast we told her at first we would not charge her rent and even return the rent however she didn't listen and talked with a disrespectful manner so we are going legal now. Any more advice tips thanks in advance.
