If tenant did not leave after the expiration of notice, the VLTA, deed of lease allow you 1/12 duble per dim for every day the tenant is a holder to your home after the expiration of the notice to vacate. your tenants have the burden to show evidance of rent payment. Tenants can not use or claim security depposit as rent .

Do not hire a lawyer, take the tenants to general District court not the circut court . Show documents,such as 30 days notice, deed of lease , pictures of the property before and after ocupanncy

Good luck
