“Dear PoPville,

How hard is it to evict a tenant that is not paying rent?

I know that tenant rights are very strong in this city but I have a tenant that has not paid rent for a few months. I have done everything I can to work with the tenant but this has not helped. I finally filed for an eviction notice, had the tenant served with papers, and a court date has been issued. Does anyone have any experience with this and know how long it will take for the tenant to actually be evicted?

To be clear, this is not a tenant who appears to have any financial hardship and did sign a lease for an upscale building in DC.”
