Eviction in Fort Myers – What to Do When my Tenant Stops Paying Rent

Jonathan Maloy - Monday, September 22, 2014

Today we are talking about tenant eviction and how Rentals by Mark, a division of Complete Realty Solutions in Cape Coral and Fort Myers, handles tenants who are late paying rent. We work in a web-based program that lets us know immediately when a tenant is late paying rent. Five days after rent is due, if we still do not have a payment and we have not heard from the tenant to explain, we contact the tenants. We do this through phone and through email to follow up on getting that payment.

If we do not hear back from the tenants and we still don’t have a payment, we will physically go to the home. If necessary, we will post a 3 Day Notice, which requires the tenants to bring the rent up to date within three days. When those three days come and go and we still don’t have rent, we start the eviction process through the court system.

It’s important for your Fort Myers / Cape Coral property management company to stay in contact with the owners during this process. We always communicate with you before the eviction process starts, and we discuss the situation in full. This minimizes any loss to the property owner and it allows us to act quickly to resolve the problem of lost rent.

Please do not hesitate to contact us at Rentals by Mark if you have any questions about tenant eviction, or you need help collecting late rent from your tenants.


"Thank you Mark & Leslie for everything. We've been very happy with and appreciate the job you've done for us since we switched to you a few years ago. I'll definitely recommend you to anyone I know that may need you're services in the future. Carol & I are happy the landlord business is behind us now and looking forward to whatever is next."
Thanks again, Dave
