questions & answers

Question: the tenants have had their water turned off twice for non payment. 1st time wsa for 29 days,and the second was for9 days before I found out from the town. the first itime the remedy was pay the bill and get the water turned on. with the second I am going to evict them. I gave them a notice that it was their second time in six months that this has happened. I have to wait ten days before I give them a special detainer fo evection. does this the right way to do this.

Answer: It is not clear that failure to pay a utility bill to the utility is good cause to terminate a rental agreement. However, it the failure materially affects health and safety then you could provide a 10 day notice to remedy the breach and if they do not do so you could then proceed with a special detainer action.
