My tenant has violated the lease agreement by not keeping the premises clean, sanitary and in good condition. She owes money for damages to my carpet when her houseguest caused a small flood in the basement. I sent her a certified letter stating that she had 30 days to pay for the carpet or she would face eviction. Being as though she has already broken the terms of the lease by not keeping the house in good, sanitary condition and immediately reporting the issues, do I have to wait until the 30 days is up for nonpayment before I evict her?
