Get a lawyer.. Please don't take laws into your hands, because the law tilts more in favour of tenants.

Yes, he will still be given some few weeks of grace again to park out. After which he can be deemed as a trespasser, and can then be forcefully ejected (in the presence of bailiffs).
If you get in between the processes, you may be shooting yourself in the leg, as he may even have to sue you for wrongful eviction.

If the tenant is on yearly payment, it is 6 months notice that u'll give him and it will start counting frm d day you served him d notice irrespective of how many months he has not paid.

No i did not serve him Notice to Quit what i served him is Quit notice because the agreement which he signed before parking him in my house is that he must pay his rent a day after his rent expire .and he have make it clear to me that he will not pay for the rent so he have no plan to pay for the house rent so i have no other option than to serve him Quit notice since his rent have expired since August.

Oga landlord. Paying rent a day after rent has expired? Have u ever been a tenant in someone's house before? Is that how u use to pay? Even in this present economic situation?


As for your tenant, hes obviously a trouble maker and a landlord like u that will ask his tenant to renew His rent a day after his rent has expired deserves some one like that

His rent have expired since on 2nd August which is about 4 to 5 months now the agreement which we signed said he have to renew his rent a day after his rent expire does not mean to me that he have to pay his rent by that time because if like i take the agreement serious i would have serve him Quit notice since August but i have never disturb him to pay for his rent just ending of last month November i

reminded him that his rent have expired since 2nd of August but he did not gave me good respond .Most of my tenants stay in my house like 3 to 5 months when their rent expire i never disturb any of them because i know they will pay. I am also a tenant in another state where i live even my landlord agreement said that i have to renew my rent a day before my rent is about to expire. when my

rent expire if i don't money i will not start to insult my landlord instead i will plead with him to give me time which he will understand i have lived in his house for the past 5 years i have never have problem with him. for the part you said the tenant is a trouble maker that what landlord like me deserved the only reason am taking everything slow is because of the law of the country if not i would have throw him out in the night and confiscate his properties until him pay me my money and he can't never do shitt .he should thank his God there's laws guiding the country .

This is how tenants behave especially in Lagos state.
Once they pay the first rent and it expires, to pay subsequent rents becomes a big problem.

They do this on purpose because the law is on their side.

Get a lawyer and take them to court, if they are on a yearly tenancy, that means you have to give them 6months quit notice.

That 6 months notice is for paying tenants, not debtors. Its 7 days notice to pack out once your rent is over. Check Lagos Tenancy Law. Its called to recover your property from a defaulting tenant.

Not true! The moment a tenant's rent expires, you can serve him notice to vacate in 7 days! If he still has subsisting rent, then he need 6 months notice. Know that 6 months notice doesn't mean tenant won't pay rent again

Go back to court and tell them he refused to leave. Ask court to provide bailiffs to evict him.

Please on no account should you use self help to evict him. Use the court process you have started. Remember you may also sue him to recover rent he owe for the time he spent without paying. After getting such judgement, if he doesn't pay, you can ask court to attach his properties.

When is he expected to renew his rent if not a day after his rent expires? A month grace period? You can even see the landlord didn't disturb him. Hmm. Tenants are wicked ooooo

Since you don't want to contact a lawyer.Let me give you a summary of what you should do .Serve him the statutory notices ie 7 days and one month,then file a suit for recovery of premises at the nearest magistrate court.Once the case comes up tell the court you are handling the case yourself,enter witness box and tell the court what the man did and the order you are seeking from them.The bailiff will then enter the box and tell the court that he served the man but he didn't come .The court will then grant you the order you are seeking.You will take the judgement copy and go to the bailiff and pay them for policemen. The policemen and the bailiffs will go to the man's house one early morning, break his house and pack all his properties to the court premises.I hope you learnt something today from this.Goodluck

After the seven days warning, you will go to court if he refuses to pack. Once you win the verdict, you can get police to evict him forcefully
