I'm a new landlord. Been renting out a house in Texas for 4 years. Have had the same tenants all this time. The only thing positive I can say about them is they pay their rent on time. Last year I started noticing damage to the interior of the house: excessive mold on bathroom tile because it hadn't been cleaned, patched walls from holes.  Recently I went in to bring a plumber in and noticed a bedroom door had been hit and kicked to the point it will have to be replaced, I discovered more patched walls, and a mirrored sliding closet door has been shattered. Its irreplaceable.  I didn't say anything to the tenant at that time despite the fact that the damage could't be missed. And the tenant didn't address it either.  I am unsure how to handle this problem. The tenants are no longer under a lease contract and are currently doing month to month.  I am unsure if I should just evict them, or send them a warning letter letting them know I am aware of the damage and threatening eviction if the damage isn't repaired. Thoughts?
