Canal Winchester, OH asked in Landlord - Tenant for Tennessee

Q: Requesting documentation from tenants

My lease requires the tenants to carry a renters insurance policy. They have been in the house for 3 weeks and I've asked for a copy of the policy 3 times. I've also asked for the move in checklist 3 times and I still haven't received that either. How do I handle this? Damages are already present. The house was practically new as we had to just about replace everything after the last tenants destruction.

A: What does your lease say? If that is a material term in the lease you may have grounds for an eviction if they have breached the terms of the lease. But you must also give proper notice. Consult local counsel for your optoins.
