I am currently subleasing my apartment in the Greenville area. The sublet has told me she will not pay rent for the last three months that she is occupying the apartment (which is May-July when the lease ends). As the main tenant on the lease, am I allowed to kick her out by May 1st if she has told me she will not pay the rent (I have it documented as well)
? I have already paid a months worth of rent for her, plus the amount she owed for her utility overages and late rent fees. I just want to avoid legal troubles that she could possibly hold against me.

If I were you, I would take everything to the magistrate at the courthouse and ask their advice. Hopefully there is an attorney on this forum who might know the answer.

NO. And even assuming that you have legal standing in the matter (vs the actual owner)...
unless and until the tenant hasn't paid and all the due process notice to remedy etc have played out...
no court will order them to leave. And even then the order isn't enough to actually get them out.

This sounds like a soap opera.

Contact YOUR landlord.
Good luck.
