If the ruling is in the favor of the landlord then an eviction date will be scheduled.
This seems like a simple process but one missed step or filing with the courts too early could spell disaster.
Using the Notice For Failure To Pay Rent form gives the tenant 10 days from the time they have received the form to either pay the owed payment in full or the landlord may take legal action for an eviction. This 10 day period starts when the tenant has the notice. If it is being sent in the mail then the landlord may have to wait longer to allow for the notice to reach the tenant and have their attention. In Indiana there are guidelines as to how many extra days the tenant can have the notice without taking action before the landlord can apply for a court hearing.
The Best Way To Serve The Notice
Handing the form to the tenant and having them sign the notice as proof that they have received it is the best way to get started. If you opt for this method then the 10-day period will start immediately and the possibility for eviction will be sooner.
