My Tennant Called To Threaten Me.

Well my wonderful tennant who:
1)gave me a cheque I could not cash, deducted a small improvement to the apartment after I waited 3 months for her to pay the rent,
2)never paid the light or water bills, stood me up 3 times to get said bills, and gave me a copy of a bill with no payment record the 4th time I went to get the bills called.
3)Who has no contract as it was not renewed.
4)Who has not paid the rent she owes for 2 months. November and December and soon January.
5)Who put in a cheap tile floor without my permission, when I told her not to do it as I like the linoleum floor it had.

Did she call to appologise? NO!
Did she call to ask for more time to look for a new place? NO!
Did she call to let me know she had sent me the receipts for the unpaid bills? NO!

She called to ask why had I suspended the telephone.
I said, we have no contract and you have not paid the electric and water bills.
She lied saying she had sent the recepts to landlord insurance office.
I told her I was pursuing eviction.
She then threatend to get an appeal on the grounds of unconsitutionality and said she would live there for another year and a half not paying rent while I got her evicted.
I said, we´ll see about that!
Today I called and said I would not pursue eviction but would instead try to reach an agreement with her. She said she would like the 6 month extention I had offered her before. I said, please send the receipts for the water and electricity bill to the lawyer.
I was so upset talking to her. She was trying to convince me that it was crazy to pursue eviction. I think it would be crazy not to.
