Evicting boarder for non-payment

I guess you can tell by the title, this question is coming from someone that owns/runs a boarding stable.

While my dad taught me quite a bit, one thing he never went over was evicting someone for non-payment of board.

I am aware of the steps needed to evict a tenant from a dwelling, I have not evicted any boarders yet.

This person moved in under my dads's "watch".
March board was never paid and so far, neither has April's board been paid, although boarders have always had until the 10th to pay.
My dad was always aware or varying paydays and such and it worked fine for him for 50 years. I saw not reason to change what had been working all this time. My dad was more a a people person that I am I guess.
And I have never had a problem either. As long as they are consistent (Like don't pay on the 2nd one month then the 10th the next, then the 6th on the next and so on.

I have heard far to many excuses from this woman and its time for her and her horses to go.

So what is the standard procedure for this.

I am in California, Los Angeles County.

Thank you

What does it say in your contract ? It should be spelled out there.

I would send her a certified letter stating pay or you have so many days to remove your horse or your going to put a lien on it and sell it for the cost of the overdue board.

Verbal only. No paper.
Something which I am in the process of remedying.

Ok then...similar to someone that is storing something in an empty stall then?
Because I did have to do that, and that's what I did.

Is there any kind of minimum time that I can give?

Perhaps I will look it up in the morning. Its been a really long day for me today

Thanks.

Contract, contract, contract! Verbal may hold up but you always get things in writing, clarity.

At this point, your best option is to consult an attorney - the lack of a signed, written contract really takes a leg out from under you.

I feel your pain CodeMonk, I have a boarder who is driving me crazy right now. She is always late, and she bounced a check on me last month. I only started the boarding with a friend and then another friend asked if his mom could board with me, she seemed nice so I said sure. Now I find I can't stand the sight of her, she annoys me constantly.
Last month I was trying to empty all the hay out of the barn and then go buy more hay so she hands me her board and tells me when I go buy hay she will pay the rest errrg well then she doesn't pay until a week before the end of the month and the check bounces. This month she doesn't pay until my husband ask her when she is going to pay. I told him I don't want her to pay because this is the last month I'm putting up with this crap.
I only charge 120 a month that includes food and she borrows my stuff, which has becomes just a terrible habit.
I'm not good with asking for anything from anyone, which is why it's gotten to the point where I can't stand her.
Just had to rant, sorry if I took over your post

This is the process at our barn. B.O. Sends 2 seperate letters (probably overkill, but she's cautious) and gives 1 month from the first letter, sends the 2nd 2 weeks later. She has only taken ownership of the horse once.

This is probably your only option now however...signed contracts are a must. If you have recently taken over, I'd have every boarder signing a contract with any changes you are making and if they choose not to sign a new contract, give them 30 days. You need to protect yourself.
