Pls, advise me on what to do with this stubborn tenant.
I wish to recover my apartment from a female Tenant for personal use...I then approach a lawyer to draft a quit notice. I gave her the quit notice and she refuses to collect it,
lawyers in the house, pls can you advise me on what to do? Thanks.

Not a lawyer but if you serve me quit notice and I'm not owing, you're just wasting your time. If my rent expiration coincides with the quit notice, I'll flex 6-months sara and nothing go happen.
The problem is when landlords issue a quit notice in the morning, they expect you out by evening. Where is the sense in that? As if I'll be living under the bridge and contacting housing agents from there.

The reason for the quit notice is for personal use...nothing more.

Why feel entitled to someone else's asset?

GboyegaD:Not a sense of entitlement. By law, I'm entitled to six months.

Since she is a yearly tenant, I gave her 6 months notice to quit
|Re: Quit Notice To A Tenant by fineboynl(m): 7:27am On Jan 09|
Oracleforce:is the 6 months notice completely free or from part of her yearly rent.
|Re: Quit Notice To A Tenant by Oracleforce: 7:44am On Jan 09|
Partly from her yearly rent. base on the lawyer's advice

Get a lawyer.. Please don't take laws into your hands, because the law tilts more in favour of tenants. get a lawyer to Give him quit notice if his a yearly tenant 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.
Once the quit notice has been filed validly for 6 months, any day over that 6 months notice means the tenant is holding over that property illegally and he no longer becomes a tenant but a tenant at sufferance and from there onward you dont need to issue him a quit notice again but an OWNERS INTENTION TO RECOVER PREMISES in 7 DAYS And from there onwards the tenant practically has no defence legally when the matter will be filed at the rent tribunal nearest to you.
Tops with all the adjournment within 3 to 5 months the court balliffs will personally come to serve them to eject them of the premises compulsorily.
DO IT YOURSELF (DIY)
If 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
If you based in Lagos If its Lagos, go through the human right activist section or Mediation center of the State Government. They have many outlets in each local government in the state. They'll charge a fee of #8,000 and would handled the cases
I don't encourage this any longer but its inevitable where a tenant things you must suffer after the initial suffer to build a house. Go to court, pay the clerk and officials and get a notice, paste on his door in his absent and snap then take notice off. Make some other person appear in court in his stead as a proxy tenant he transferred tenant ship to without your consent and get a verdict and evict him immediately as the unpreparedness will rock his life for ever. He can continue the fight from outside your house. The person that appeared is the person you have been seeing around the house and you don't know him. Simply put, he alone can provide that person.

Thank you for your professional advice...i appreciate
However,.from experience I discovered that some stubborn tenants do not honor the invitation of mediation center, human right commission, and multi-door (court of arbitration)
|Re: Quit Notice To A Tenant by petitmonde(m): 12:26pm On Jan 09|
fineboynl:So, how does it work.?
|Re: Quit Notice To A Tenant by lavylilly: 12:28pm On Jan 09|
Oracleforce:Are you sure you have used Mediation center before?
|Re: Quit Notice To A Tenant by petitmonde(m): 12:29pm On Jan 09|
Stop advertising your ignorance.
'flex six months Sara': unto say you gather money join build the property.

Even when he said he contacted a lawyer?
Evidently, you know nothing about tenancy law.

fineboynl:That's exactly how it works. She signed a year rent contract and if d contract is not renewed by expiration of d rent, d landlord can issue 3month eviction notice. 6month prior notice is okay since u not forcing her to terminate her rent. Place the rent on her dor or make a report with the police stating you have gAve her notice which she refused, that will serve as evidence

God bless you!
If anyone has ever seen a scenario where a tenant is forcefully ejected .they would not toy with quit notice.
Forceful eviction is humiliation.
