QUESTION: What are the laws and regulations, if any, when it comes to a sublettor not paying me rent and what are my options?


  1. You might be able to get an eviction but realistically your best bet is to sue them in small claims court. That's really about it. basically unless you did something stupid like sign an agreement that says they can pay in cash you're guaranteed to win and then a judge will order they pay you if they have the funds available. If they have the funds and refuse they go to jail for violating a court order. If they don't have the funds they wait until they do.

    1. Like 1 said. Just threaten to sue them and they'll pay up. Give them a deadline. Do it in writing.
