What is the least expensive way to get a non paying renter out of our rent house ?

We have not been able to contact her at all -- the cell phone she had no longer holds messages. She lost her job shortly after she moved in. Her car was repossed. We mailed a certified letter to give notice to move - but it was not picked up -- we left a note on her door -- she apparently has not been back to the house at all in over 2 weeks. She was short last month's rent and we have not been able to contact her at any of the numbers she put on the application. Texas is the state.

Get with the police to serve an eviction notice. I don't know the time frame but if the eviction notice isn't responded to you can go into the house and move all her stuff outside and change the locks.

file an eviction notice with the courts. It cheap and can be fast in some cases. They will put her stuff on the streets.

the 2 weeks is the key. You need to declare the property abandoned with the county clerk, after which you move her %^&%^ out of there. The clerk will give you the correct form.
