Question posted in the Property Law category relating to North West
Question value: R 0.00


I am/was renting out my property to a family of three. 

Never paid deposit and short on rent from first month.

They have never paid the municipal bill either.

I had an attorney serve them with an eviction notice 1 April 2019.

I found out today that they have been subletting rooms to almost 20 people. There is complaints from the neigbours (one wich is a doctors office) of constant parties and the sale and use of dagga and alcohol on the property.They have also damaged and dirtied the property. Above that I have now got a R48 000 municipal bill to pay.

I am also in financial trouble due to the property rental being my only source of income.

How do I go about getting them removed as soon as possible?
