Fort Wayne, IN asked in Landlord - Tenant for Indiana

Q: Can I serve a 10 day notice and evict a tenant with no remedy for being habitually late on rent?

We have a lease, which requires rent be paid in advance. He was late the first month, I waited a week, gave him a 10 day notice and he paid on the last day possible, this month, nothing but promises.

A: If your lease requires the 10 day notice or does not waive that requirement, the 10 day serves as a period for which the tenant can pay the rent that is owed or cure whatever violation of the lease that is being broken. If it is fixed by the end of the 10 day period, they are allowed to stay.
