Just curious what others would do in this situation…
June 1, 2019 I had my tenants start depositing their rent payments into my bank account at the local branch. I am able to log in and see the deposit slip image and credit the tenants for their payments. I made it very clear that deposit slips with their name or lot number must be used in order to get credit for the payment. I also provided pre-printed deposit slips with the lot number and bank account number for their convenience. June went very smoothly.
Now it’s July and I have 2 tenants who did not pay and I have 2 cash deposits with no deposit slips. Essentially, I have 4 tenants that could have made those two payments and 2 tenants that did not make any payment. I am about to have all 4 of them served with 7 day notices to quit and assume the 2 paying tenants will produce their receipts to put a stop to the eviction. Looking for feedback on this plan of action.
In the mean time, I sent out a friendly reminder to all tenants to always use deposit slips with their rent deposits.
