If you are late paying your rent then your landlord can give you a notice to "pay or quit" (in my state it is a 3 day notice). If you do not pay your rent (with any fees) by the date on the notice then the landlord can file for eviction. The eviction case will take about 1 or 2 months during which time you remain in possession of the property. If at anytime during the eviction process the landlord accepts your late rent then the eviction is dropped and the landlord will have to give you a new notice and file a new eviction case the next time you are late on the rent.

Yes, he can. The lease says rent due on the first. If you don't pay it on time, you violate the lease.

yes. habitual lateness is grounds for eviction. the lease doesnt have to mention this; it's the law. being late once is enough to get you evicted if the l/l wants to be hard-nosed.

He can evict you, but he can't accept the rent. If he excepts the rent, even late, then he will have no grounds. He may be able to evict for lease violation but not non payment of rent. At least thats the way it works in my state.

He can try but most courts favor the tenant. If at the time of the court date you do not owe any rent there are no grounds for eviction. He can though decide not to renew your lease when it's up due to habitual lateness. What "habitual" means varies... it can be once in 12 months or it can mean 2 or more times.

He can try. it normally, in most states take 2-6 months to evict.
