This is so unfair....why should a "dead beat" tenant be able to get away with this type of behavior. There are really only two approaches when dealing with these situations. One of "stroking" and one of "poking." In this case it would appear that stroking has already been ruled out.
It's sad to say that buying them out is an alternative but given the circumstances it may be your best choice. Refunding a portion or all of their deposit money and a relocation stipend may get their attention. On the surface this may appear costly but in the long run it could save you money. Stroking.
The "poking" approach would involve staying with the eviction process but stepping it up a bit. Involve an attorney and have them draft a couple letters that can be sent at various times. Bombarding them with letters explaining your rights and possible actions may also get their attention. It may be beneficial to have a licensed mold abatement company evaluate the alleged problem so that can be ruled out or remediated.
Remember, as a landlord you DO have rights.....it's just too bad you need to fight so hard to get them.
