Feb she asked not to renew her year lease because she was buying a condo and moving out in May, then it was June, then it was July. Then she asked for a few days. then she said it would be later but refuse to pay rent. Then she gave us a date that she would be moving out July 21st and 22nd. So we asked if we could take pictures and and advertise it. She agreed and we set a time. Next she said she needed to stay longer. We told her she had to pay a months rent she indicated she needed the money to move. Meanwhile we said we were having new vinyl put in on the 23rd and was showing the house on the 24th and 25th. She agreed. We were still asking for rent with no success. Now she says her privacy has been violate because of the pictures and she will not agree to let anyone in the house to fix or show the house. And I think she won't be leaving for even longer. We have wrote one letter now we are going to give her a notice and proceed to evict but we really need to keep those appointments and also get the work done to the house.

First it was June then July now she's not sure and she won't pay any rent. We advised her that if she didn't know when exactly she was moving to pay us rent, which in a few days will be two months rent. She has given us two actual dates that she was going to move out and then she keeps changing it. She needs to move out and store her items and get a motel. Both ways she says cost money and she needs that money to move. It's not like she's broke or has children.
While preparing the stick (eviction), try a carrot. She's already demonstrated a lack of conscience, and the eviction process can take some effort (as well as have some protections for the renter that you may not have anticipated).Offer her a cash incentive to move out by an agreed upon date. It's rewarding bad behavior, but it could get her out of your hair sooner (and easier, and possibly cheaper) than the eviction. As a sweetener (and "shot across the bow"), you might casually mention that you'll also not file a complaint with the credit bureaus about the late payments.
It really depends on what state you are in, but in Michigan under the Residential Tenancies Act (the Act) it allows a landlord to enter a tenant's unit only under specific circumstances. In most cases, the landlord must first give the tenant 24 hours written notice, stating when they will enter and for what reason. There are some exceptions, however, such as in the case of an emergency or if the tenant agrees to allow the landlord to enter the unit.If the landlord enters the tenant's unit as allowed by the Act, the tenant cannot refuse to let the landlord in. If the tenant does not let the landlord in, the landlord can give them a notice of termination claiming that the tenant is interfering with their lawful rights. A Member could order the tenant's eviction for this reason. Also, interfering with a landlord's lawful right is an offence under the Act, and the tenant could be prosecuted.
