EVICT HER! (by NED [AL]) Posted on: Jan 16, 2021 6:09 AM
Message:

Tenant and fiance living in apartment for about 14 months. Model tenants, perfect payment, clean, and nice. No issues.

Only the male tenant is on lease. (although I do have an app from the female, too...)

Male tenant goes to jail for domestic abuse.

Female tenant (not on lease) changes locks.

Male tenant out of jail.

Male tenant wants me to evict her, and wants keys.

Thoughts? --70.92.xxx.xxx

Stay out of it.

The person on the lease needs to evict her not you (yet).

If rent doesn't come in-- he of course owes it and will be defendant-- along with the wording "and all others". --99.103.xxx.xxx

Thanks myob. From my past experience and lightweight research, that's the conclusion I've come to, also.

Now, though, I bet she won't be able to afford rent on her own...and no eviction for non payment... --70.92.xxx.xxx

Ned, unless your state has more stringent rules, the CDC moratorium is full of exceptions. Read the 5 criteria. Tenant must prove all of those true to qualify for eviction protection. --107.216.xxx.xxx

Check your state laws. Many states have laws regarding what can be done. DV victims have special rights. One is they can change the locks. I would work with her and change the lock to my master system. Also, you may not be able to evict her. This is why all occupants are on the lease. --70.16.xxx.xxx

Careful with your words, this didn't happen suddenly, they were never model tenants, or they would not be in this situation. Stay out of it. That's his problem and he's asking you to solve it. Um? Interesting. Just keep in mind that they may not have bothered your all this time but they were never model tenants if all this was goin on. --172.58.xx.xxx

I guess I am a little confused.

You said you have an application from her. Did you approve or deny it? If approved, she should have been added to the lease so she needed to follow all lease terms. If denied, he should have been told that she can't stay/live there or you should have been able to evict based on unauthorized occupant. You muddied the water by not adding her to the lease.

Do you know what he was put in jail for? Domestic violence? If so, that may make things more difficult.

I think I would talk to her, to see what her plans are. Maybe she changed the locks because she is afraid of him and there are protections and laws the landlord needs to follow.

Maybe she is looking for another place and plans to move as soon as she can find a place. Maybe she will let you change the locks, if not the same as they were before so he can't get in.

The actual tenant put himself in this predicament by inviting her to live there. I would discuss that with him IF domestic violence is not involved. There is a thin line.

Good luck. --50.105.xxx.xx

I am with RB on this matter.

Role model residents don't hurt one another. So things changed. Its life and it happens. If you get rid of her and keep him, what happens if it happens again with someone else? Who can get sued civilly? If you keep her and she isn't on the lease, you are waiving your future rights and make getting rid of her that much harder.

Cat is on to something with that catch too. Either you apply and get accepted or you get rejected. You don't don't get stuck in the middle. Middle causes conflict and confusion - not only for her, but him and now you.

I think you are boxed in --24.101.xxx.xx

Another vote for stay out of it, with an end game of sending both of them down the road. --74.74.xxx.xx
