Drug Abusing Tennant (by Jay [NJ]) Posted on: Jun 10, 2019 10:57 AM
Message:

Just discovered that a tennant in my upstairs unit(owner occupied) has been shooting up drugs using a needle. Heard a lot of banging and thumping around last night and called the cops so that could handle it. He lives alone. Officers escort him out of the building and take him to the hospital. Officer and I walked into you and he show me syringe on the table that was used to shoot up.

Tennant arrives this morning and I asked him to explain him self to see if he would be honest about the situation. Tells me he relapsed due to PTSD. I informed he had to leave the premises by the end of the month. He complied.

My question is should this be an early termination due to extentuated circumstances or should I go through the courts to do the complete an eviction? --173.61.xxx.xxx

If he's a junkie, it might be cheaper and quicker to pay him to leave.

He informed him that he had to go. He says he'll start looking for a place. His kid's mother is going to be working with him to get her things as well. So it's might assumption that he will be out by the end of the month. My question is, is there anything I need to do on my part legally to ensure that things go with out it coming back on me regarding deposits, etc? --173.61.xxx.xxx

when he's got everything out, get him to sign a document giving you possession of the property.

Month end is A LONG way off if you're waiting for a junkie to do what's right. --72.70.xxx.xx

File for eviction now.

I had similar situation but they couldn't find another place so they kept hanging around and not paying of course.

File now to start the clock. --209.221.xxx.xxx

Another vote for eviction on drug grounds - here it can be as fast as 3 days, get police report to bolster your case. --76.188.xxx.xx

Jay I did have a few questions because I think your story is very suspicious. You called the cops cause someone was making noise? They took him to hospital-- NOT JAIL.... is that right? You then went into his place when he wasn't there and planted a suringe on the table fo rthe cops to find--- so you could evict tenant and get more rent and steal his drugs? -- for what reason? That's called B&E. He now has to leave? WHY? You saw him do this? Something isn't right here. Should this go to court there would be some serious questions from the judge I would think..... --99.103.xxx.xxx

When a tenant is impaired from the use of drugs or alcohol they are a danger to everyone including themselves. I do not tolerate this kind of behavior. I've seen tenants that were impaired set fire to the property, fall down stairs, attack a friend and worse.

It's time to consult with an expert -- an eviction attorney who's seen it all... --47.156.xx.xx

You already gave him until the end of the month, so he has until the end of the month. Write up a notice to give to him so it is in writing.

Get him to sign the notice that you and he mutually agree to end the lease by June 30.

You said you already contacted his mother and she is helping with the move, so hope that he will be out by his last date.

You don't evict until he isn't out by the date that you and he mutually agreed upon. He's not over-stay until then, --98.146.xxx.xxx

I'd handle the deposit in the normal way. You are the one who is terminating the lease, not him. Whatever damage and clean-up you need to do, deduct from his deposit. He gets the balance back. --98.146.xxx.xxx

I sorta agree with MYOB, they slammed on the brakes and took a HARD RIGHT though, I am only slowing the train down a little. Jay, why did you enter your tenants unit? I mean I agree that you should get rid of him, but you canít just go into your tenants unit because he went to the hospital. If I were you on the eviction forms donít say you walked in the unit after he left in an ambulance and found a syringe!! Maybe just say that the police told you there was a syringe on the table, and you asked him about it when he returned the next morning, thatís when he admitted using intravenous drugs. --71.248.xxx.xxx

I would do as Oregon has directed. Good advice!

still -- what is the grounds for lease terminations? You found a syringe? during an illegal search of the tenants residence? or the hearsay evidence from the cops?

Why didn't the cop lock him up? Maybe it was methadone? I'm just not buying this? If I were judge I'd give you 100 hrs of community service for violating tenants rights. --99.103.xxx.xxx

Sounds like he's leaving without creating an incident so whatever happened, the tenant knows he did something bad enough to get him in trouble.

Since he's leaving, I'd be lenient about fees and stuff. If you need to entice him towards the end and he is a junkie, drug money for keys could be quite motivating. --108.69.xxx.xxx

Perhaps a letter from him to you that he'll be out by month's end. As a NJ landlord 30+ years, Robert J gave the best advice. Consult an eviction attorney. Your County Court WILL NOT recommend one or give legal advice but they CAN tell you the names of attorneys frequently appearing in LL/tenant court. --73.215.xxx.xx

I agree that you need to tread carefully here. Junkie or not, tenants have rights. You can CYA about being inside property- when police took one of my tenants to the hospital they called me and told me to go to the property and secure it. So that would explain why you were in it with the officer. --71.10.xxx.xxx
