Landlord Question and Answer Forum
I have a tenant that is renting a room /share a townhome that I own. The tenant has given me $100 on April X. He owes $70 immediately to continue occupancy till April 30. He owes $400 due May 1st.
The tenant has not produced any more money.
There is no lease signed. (I was in the middle of preparing a lease).
I went over to the house and it was trashed. I asked him to vacate the property. He said no. Since there is no lease - what should I do?
A) Get him to sign a year lease now and then serve eviction notice?
B) Get him to sign month to month agreement and then evict him?
C) Get him to sign a Tenant at will or a borders agreement - then evict him?
D) Serve him with a Georgia 3 Day Demand for Possession form?
E) Give him $100 to move out and get him to sign a letter that he agrees to leave for $100.
Any help is greatly apprecated. I have learned my lesson well!! Thank you!!

RE: Eviction without a Lease in Georgia
If you think he'll actually move out immediately for $100, make the offer, but don't give him the $100 until his belongings are all gone and he's given back the keys. Otherwise just serve him with the eviction notice and file in court ASAP.
