Dear Mr. Reno:
My father passed away and left a rental house to my brother and I . The person living in the house has been there around 15 years. On the agreement that was signed by my parents and the attendant was for a one year lease and that the rent would be 100.00 a week. This home is in Tuscaloosa , Alabama.

1. The attendant is thousands of dollars behind in his rent. Over the years my parent let him slide. The attendant always had some problem to prevent him from paying, my question is can we have him evicted for not paying rent if there was never a renewal of the lease or anything that we can find that state he can live there regardless?

2.. We have received around 400.00 for the last 6 months. Question is : he was told that if he didn't pay is rent for the month of June we were going to evict him. We received a check for 100.00 at end of June and just received a check for 350.00. Can we cash these.? Been told if we did take even partial payment that it would mass up getting out of the house. Is this true or can we cash the checks.?

Thank you or your help

Brittney, Tuscaloosa , Alabama

A: 1. Take the $

2. Serve Notice of Default; let him know what you think he owes.

3. Start eviction for non-payment. Good luck.
