What Happens If A Tenant Does Not Pay Rent When Due?

The landlord will demand the rent. If rent is not paid, landlord will file suit in court. The tenants can appear in court and pay all of the back rent and late fees at that time and remain in the leased premises. If the judge decides in favor of the landlord or if the tenant does not pay the back rent and late fees, the sheriff will come and put the tenant`s furniture, clothes and other property outside and keep the tenant from going inside.
