A little over a month ago, I decided to rent one of my rooms out to a person who answered a roommate add I ran in my local newspaper. I am the homeowner. It took a little over a month to realize that I apparently ended up with a professional "squatter." I collected two weeks worth of rent ($200) as security deposit from him in the beginning. He has now quit paying rent. My understanding is that I need to give him a three-day written notice and if he fails to respond, file an eviction with the courts and wait for the judge to decide how much time he will give the squatter. Are there any helpful hints that would make this go smoother/quicker for me? Would it help expedite the process, for example, if I gathered information on this person's squatting history and submit it to the judge in a letter? Anything else I could do that would decrease my level of grief throughout this process?
