It certainly seems this lady cannot afford the place and is on her way out. I would help her do that in a way that is beneficial to both. Even if she realizes it, this will be a major uproar in her life when it sinks in that she must go. Should the landlord care? Not in theory but the least amount of drama, stress and damages would be my goal.

This lady bought this house for you. You now have a paid asset of $xxx,xxx. In my book, that would deserve A LOT of appreciation from me.

I would set up a repayment plan for two months rent (understanding she probably won't be able to keep it) and I would forgive one month if the plan was kept. I would make it clear if she can't keep up the plan, she will need to be out. I could do this because in my area it would only take 30ish days to remove if/when that became necessary. If you're in an area that takes months and months, to evict, that would probably not work.

$700 is about $3.00 a month over the term of her tenancy. Several turn overs in a 19 year span would have cost a lot more in money, time and aggravation ... to say nothing of the unknown of who would have lived there and possibly caused some type issues.

Thank you for your opinion, Nicole. You and I are a lot alike in our thinking.
