A tenant has a duty to pay rent. If they don’t, they will lose their right to possession of the property.  

  1. The landlord must issue a 5 day notice to the tenant for failing to pay rent.  This document states that they owe the rent and the amount that is past due.  It also states that that the tenant has 5 days to pay the amount due or the landlord can file an eviction action. 
  2. If the tenant pays, the landlord cannot file an eviction based on the failure to pay rent. 
  3. If the tenant does not pay the landlord can initiate an eviction.
