Per the original post, even before the internet I had always thought that some sort of Landlord association could be formed at the local level, one of their activities could be to maintain a list of problem tenants (they could also require landlords be professional to be part of the group.) You would need to get a lawyer's opinion on how to maintain suich a list to avoidd lawsuits. Really there is strength in numbers and knowledge can be shared as well as techniques in screening applicants, the best contractors, tax issues and evicting the trouble tenants. I've been both a good tenant and a good landlord, it is a two way deal. Personally if I got back into rental properties, it would be commercial. If I did get back into apartment renting, I'd have no interest in lower end housing, or to renting to anyone not employed. Society just seems to be tanking especially quick at the lower income bracket, personal responsibility and respect for others' property do not seem to be on the agenda. I'd require references from 2 prior landlords AND the employer, security deposits, and i'd likely invest in credit checks, even background checks by a PI, although if I was in the business I'd learn to do them myself. Most data is held publicly, it is just (well worth it) research. finally, a strong Landlords association could let candidates know they are united and will vote as a block in their interests.

YOU WILL WANT TO EVICT YOUR TENANTS FOR NON-PAYMENT BECAUSE THEY OWE BACK RENT, IT WOULD BE THE FASTEST WAY TO HAVE THEM REMOVED. LANDLORD TENANT COURT CAN BE VERY COMPLICATED,ONE LITTLE MISTAKE AND IT CAN BE THROWN OUT, MY SUGGESTION IS FOR YOU TO GET A LAWYER FOR YOUR FIRST TIME ,LEARN FROM IT ,MAYBE TRY DOING IT YOUR SELF THE NEXT TIME. I LEARNED FROM MANY YEARS OF BEING A LANDLORD SO I DO THEM MYSELF . ANOTHER IDEA IS TO SIT IN LANDLORD TENANT COURT AND STUDY WHAT THE JUDGE DOES ,YOU CAN LEARN A LOT THAT WAY .YOU CAN ALSO TALK TO OTHER LANDLORDS WHO ARE AT COURT ,TO LEARN MORE ABOUT EVICTIONS.
A THIRTY DAY NOTICE IS FOR A HOLDOVER PROCEEDING. THAT IS FOR WHEN A TENANT STAYS PAST THE END OF A LEASE AND YOU DO NOT WANT TO RENT TO THEM OR IF YOU HAVE A MONTH TO MONTH LEASE YOU WOULD SERVE A 30 DAY TO TERMINATE YOUR MONTH TO MONTH TENANCY.
I HOPE THIS IS HELP FULL,
