It is never easy to evict someone when you are a landlord, but when it is a roomate type situation, things get even trickier. But, sometimes it becomes necessary to evict a roommate and there’s a number of signs that say that it is time. Is the roommate late on rent or not paying at all? Are they causing problems at the property? These are some reasons to evict. When that time comes, don’t panic or let the incident turn sour. You can keep these three things in mind to ensure it goes smoothly.
- You need to have a clear reason why you want to evict the roommate, other than that you just don’t like the person.
- Discuss problems with the roommate in person rather than through a letter or text.
- Be calm when you discuss problems with the roommate and make sure you are both in a situation where you can sit and talk without being rushed.
“One of the ways that you can put an end to a bad roommate situation if previous methods did not work out successfully is to evict the roommate(s) that are the cause of the problem you are facing.”
