Forum / General Property Management / Partial Rent Payment
I have a tenant who is a cronic late payer since day one. Tenant paid half of Sept rent on 9/14. Lease agreement says it must be paid on or before the 5th. Being that I have accepted partial rent, can I still evict tenant? I want them out before they get into my pocket much more.

RE: Partial Rent Payment
Accrding to TN law :66-28-508. Waiver of landlord's right to terminate. — If the landlord accepts rent without reservation and with knowledge of a tenant default, the landlord by such acceptance condones the default and thereby waives such landlord's right and is estopped from terminating the rental agreement as to that breach.

Charge a late fee and try putting them on a bi-monthly plan and stick to your guns. Forewarn them to get their act together, or face possible eviction.
