Try to convince or negotiate with your tenants
One thing you may try to do is to reason with your tenants and explain that you provide a service so they need to pay and treat it properly. Perhaps your tenants don’t realize they are inconveniencing you or maybe they’re not paying because they need a different payment schedule (such as weekly instead of monthly).
Evict your tenants
Sometimes evicting tenants can be hard, tricky and even legally complicated but it still is an option for you. Laws often favor tenants over landlords so you might have an uphill battle but in the long run it could be worth the effort to get them out of your property and instead get someone into your property who is a better tenant.
Explore other legal options
In some situations, you may be able to explore other legal options, from suing your tenants to getting their wages garnished. It all depends on the situation and the laws governing that situation. Of course, you may need to work with a high priced attorney to do this but sometimes it’s worth the expense just to get bad tenant out of your rental property.
Sell your property

For rental property owners with family living in the rental, this is an ideal solution.
