    Default My tenant won't move out, and won't pay the rent either!!

    Hi, I am an American renting my apartment to a Dominican in the DR. I want him out of there as he is 2 months behind with payment of his rent. He did not pay a deposit, nor rent upfront so I have nothing to fall back on. He says the law is on his side and I can't throw him out for months, is this true?? Does dominican law say this? Help please!!!

    Sorry but you really screwed yourself and yes it will be really tough to get him out of there. Get yourself a good lawyer and good luck!!

    mido is right. You need professional help. Where are you? If in the general Sosua area the Guzman firm would be good. They have had experience in dealing with cases like this.

    Do not try to handle this on your own. I can't emphasize that enough.

    One thing you could consider in the interim is calling the electric company and cancelling electrical service and if you have a separate meter for water doing the same for the water.

    How is the law on his side? I have heard of people that get them out quick for non payment. You just have to call the right people. Also, everywhere in DR they ask for 3 months deposit minimum... Why on earth did you rent it with no deposit???????
