May be impractical to get LL's involved in any action, but in these days with the left wing picketing everything I wonder if there would be any effect (if only news PR) to picket the homes of some politicians and judges asking them to house some displaced tenants/homeless people in their usually large homes....
I mean yes its only a small dent into the problem but at least its some help that THEY could do.,..We would need to contact TV/News people to let them know we would be at XXXXXX on Tue at x time,.. and have a good spokes person that can verbalize and explain our position. (We could offer air mattresses for the "guests" to sleep on,.
Oh I know there is little chance of any politican or judge taking us up on the action, but they might know we are there and we too can complain and get tv/News coverage Maybe it might make a tick of concern in these election days. --70.158.xxx.xx

I would confront the extreme left wing nutcases then ask them where in the world has socialism worked. On the island of socialist paradise they don't pay rent but have to wait 30 to 35 years to get a place as there is a severe housing problem. Oh the members of the party get a place right away no waiting. On the revolutionary posters translated from Spanish to English socialism or death. The island is in good climate where it is possible to grow all year around yet a lot of the food has to be imported as collective farms do not work. The extreme left wing nutcases do not even represent 0.01 per cent of the population where ask them where socialism works. The nut cases do not believe in the free market economy where the plan is to bankrupt the private sector rental housing providers. Write editorials in the newspapers along meeting all forms media to explain what rental housing is about like what industry supports the local economy which buys goods and services from that community. Like how is economy going to recover the crisis where if a business is effected. One demonstration here there was incident where one of demonstrators became violent then was arrested. How does one get reelected when the economy is ruined. Will 0.01 per cent of the population get reelected. There is going to be a severe rental housing crisis where if the private sector housing is destroyed people will have no place to live. Landlords associations can meet up the media to explain what jobs and opportunity are all about. Show them when a rental building is renovated where the jobs and materials come from. Invite the media when a building is being renovated then show where good paying jobs are important to the economy. No one is going to reason with the nutcases. One here still remembers provincial Liberals who were left wing then voted out where now there is Progressive Conservative government in power with a majority which can pass legislation without the other two left wing parties. Last time when was in Cuba once you leave the resort the reality of what life is like becomes apparent when go into a town or city. One person told me how the members of the party live like kings. A lot of people have a good knowledge of the English as the education is good yet everyone knows human nature is why socialism never works. Every week someone from the rental housing should have a story about rental housing then how it works. --147.194.xxx.xx

Our Indiana State REIA filed a lawsuit against the Govnr. That got some news coverage AND he declared on the next day (coincidence?) the eviction moratorium would only last 2 more weeks, not another month.
HE is up for re-election and needs to keep both sides happy.

I would do it.
IF the local news would be willing to air it - unedited - that would be great.
But, they probably wouldn't consider it important enough. And, of course they would comment on how greedy the protestors are. I'm so cynical.
We really do need to send up and TRY to be heard. Even if we are not personally affected yet. The path that the politicians ar going down id very dangerous for the future of all of us.
I would love to see my entire local REIA organize a trip to the capitol for such an event. 400-500 people might get attention.
I would do it, but don't know how to organize such a thing. And I really don't know how many landlords care / are concerned enough tp participate. (cynical/discouraged again).
A small group, i think, would be worse - make it look like not many are affected / care.

That should have been: stand up and TRY.
And of course, are going down is important --70.160.xxx.xxx

Never work. The best protest would be to pick a city for the protest, and get every landlord in that town to evict all their non-payers at once, and have every landlord with a vacancy agree to not fill those vacancies until next year, leaving the entitled freeloaders to live on the streets.
We could start a national gofundme to raise money to replace those rents. Once enough freeloaders were permanently out on the street we would finally have their attention.
Of course, any good protest will probably bring down harsher laws against us. Probably the best thing to do is sell where the climate is unfriendly and buy where the climate is friendly. Let the draconian cities deal with the lack of rentals. --108.69.xxx.xxx

I've been thinking lately of doing a GOFUNDME to provide $$$ for a lawyer to sue the Governor of xxxxxxxx for imposing an eviction moratorium, in addition to taking away our property rights, forcing some to pay for others, and getting in the middle of a private contract.
How many of you, if you were in my state, would pony up? --70.92.xx.xx

Shoot, just get a printing company to make up some certificates for a "Free weeks housing on us, present this ticket at xxx address (favorite judge/politician) for one free week of housing". On the back, print "Just our little gift to say thanks to our local landlords who have been forced to do this everyday"
Then just go through town and hand them out to every homeless person you run across, I bet that would make the news. --64.130.xx.xxx

Some jurisdictions governments fund those nut cases with taxpayers money. If the nut cases are sincere about affordable free rental housing then they use the funds that were lining their own pockets for affordable housing. Talk the talk or do the walk. --147.194.xxx.xx

"Life is not a dress rehearsal"
"Your best decision making has got you right where you are today"
" Freedom and liberty are not passed down through the generations"
"Life is too short"
I would simply move - I left Taxachusetts decades ago.
Pros: It is immediate - fixes the problem and you can enjoy the remaining years you have to scuba dive or climb mountains or whatever floats your boat
Taxachusetts is way past gone - - your time to picket was decades ago. commoners in Taxachusetts are simply flies to be swatted away by the elite leftist politicians
You guys still think the Kennedy's are royalty

BRAD 20,000 - What is your take on the Indiana Rental Assistance program?
We have one tenant that we filed on just as the moratorium was announced. She is now 5 months behind and has applied for the rental assistance. The way we read it is we can get up to $2,000 (she is into us for about $3,200 or more for rent and utilities that we bill back to the tenant).
With the various strings that are attached, like having to forego the late fees, and still not being able to evict her, would it be worth it?
Also, her one year lease expires on September 30th. Can we just inform her we will not renew her lease and be done with her? Our Lease stipulates that with a 30 day notice by either party, the lease can be renewed or not.
She has been a problem tenant, and refuses to cooperate on various things, besides not paying the rent. She has made very little effort to try and keep up on the rent and utilities, so we would like her gone from the apartment. --209.132.xxx.xxx
