Pay him to leave. The reason 99% of renters don't pay is because they don't have any money.
I've done that in the states for many, many years and now instruct my property managers to do the same. I tell them I'll give them one months rent if they leave in a certain time and the place is in good shape.
Might work. Otherwise you'll lose for months as well as pay lawyer fees.

Go here and scroll down looking for the threads that are related to your problem.
By far the easiest, simplest, quickest, and yes, cheapest way of getting the problem solved.

Trust, it's a WHOLE lot cheaper than fighting with them.

Yup. we've been doing this for years. I think we've only had to evict maybe 4 tenants in numerous properties for 4 decades...

BTW, I LIKE the U-Haul idea. I'm passing it on. Excellent.
Thanks. It worked when I first posted, but not now. Try this:

CBs advice is good. Dont get all involved in what is right and you are not gonna let him get away with this sort of stuff. Its all about $. There are a good number of horror stories of people living rent free for years in the DR. Its especially bad if there are young children involved. You made a mistake.
The law is not on his side. Yes it will be difficult to get him out, just like in the US, you have to go through a process. You will need to get yoursefl a lawyer. Next time, start the eviction process sooner rather than later.
The next time she better get a deposit.
