    Either write it off as bad debt or send it collections. Sending to collections isn't a guarantee of getting $$ though. I know our last company the one we used had a little over 1% recovered. The typical ones I saw who would pay it off were when it got put on their credit report and was preventing them from getting into a new lease/home purchase.

    The court costs (and time involved) just isn't worth it; if they let everything go to auction, it's unlikely they have any money or assets. We send to collections, but in 6 years I have not seen one penny recovered. I agree with the rest of the comments.... write it off, and rent the space asap!

    We send all of our non-collectable rent to collections.  It costs nothing and takes seconds online to do.

    You can send them to collections, but we usually don't unless the amount still do is over $500
