Destructive behavior (by Primus [PA]) Posted on: Apr 5, 2021 2:55 PM
Message:

What do I do with PHA Tenants that are destroying my property by kicking in doors, breaking windows in the time when I am not allowed to evict? Are there any special cases that an eviction is allowed during C-19 pandemic? --68.83.xxx.xx




Destructive behavior (by Still Learning [NH]) Posted on: Apr 5, 2021 3:08 PM
Message:

Canít you evict for destruction and lease violations? I thought the eviction moratorium only covered non- payment of rent. --75.67.xxx.xxx




Destructive behavior (by Ray-N-Pa [PA]) Posted on: Apr 5, 2021 3:11 PM
Message:

If you are collecting govt cash you really have to have your ducks in a row and have this destruction well documented. You might also want to try to work this out with your housing counselor whom set up the PHA contract --24.154.xx.x




Destructive behavior (by Allym [NJ]) Posted on: Apr 5, 2021 3:15 PM
Message:

Can you call the police and report vandalism? You really don't know it's them or do you have photos. I bet they would not like the cops there. --108.24.xx.xx




Destructive behavior (by JB [OR]) Posted on: Apr 5, 2021 3:17 PM
Message:

People make a deal with the devil and wonder why the get burned. Lesson #1.

Maybe it's time you pick up your own pitchfork and get to work. --73.25.xx.xxx




Destructive behavior (by Robert J [CA]) Posted on: Apr 5, 2021 3:37 PM
Message:

I would call the police and an eviction attorney. Maybe not in that order. --47.155.xx.xxx




Destructive behavior (by RentsDue [MA]) Posted on: Apr 5, 2021 3:43 PM
Message:

Call the police. Itís not a civil issue when there is property damage. If they wonít go out for property damage then call it in as a wellness check. In my world, thatís usually when the tenant loses their s&@t right in front of the cops and gets locked up. Get a police report and file a restraining order. You have to house them for free but you donít have to allow them to destroy the place. --75.133.xxx.xx




Destructive behavior (by Nicole [PA]) Posted on: Apr 5, 2021 5:30 PM
Message:

In Pennsylvania, you cannot file a restraining order against tenants for destruction of property. Restraining orders are for members of your own household, family, etc. Not tenants, neighbors, coworkers, etc. --72.70.xxx.xx




Destructive behavior (by small potatoes [NY]) Posted on: Apr 5, 2021 11:35 PM
Message:

Nicole, if your tenant threatened you, you couldn't file a restraining order?

Primus, also file a freedom of information act (FOIL) request w/ the police for your tenants address/ unit and name. I bet they have been called there. --24.194.xxx.xxx




Destructive behavior (by Nicole [PA]) Posted on: Apr 6, 2021 8:16 AM
Message:

tater tot - no. It is between household members, family members, partners, etc.

There are other type criminal charges if someone threatens you. I'm not sure but I'd guess harassment would be the one they'd commonly use. A 'real' threat probably has a more serious charge. --72.70.xxx.xx




Destructive behavior (by Oregon Woodsmoke [ID]) Posted on: Apr 6, 2021 10:59 AM
Message:

You should be able to evict for destruction of property or conspicuous waste.

However, you can't even do that if the courts are closed. You will have to find out if the judges are hearing eviction cases.

I suggest that you hire a local attorney who specializes in evictions. --76.178.xxx.xxx

[[[[[.....you couldn't file a restraining order?.....]]]]] not to get the tenant out of the house because all the landlord has to do to avoid contact is to stay away. You could probably get a restraining order to keep the tenant from coming to your own residence. That wouldn't help Primus. --76.178.xxx.xxx




Destructive behavior (by Jim [OH]) Posted on: Apr 6, 2021 12:11 PM
Message:

Simple. Get out of the PHA rental market.

You're learning how destructive it can be. Now learn how profitable the private rental market can be.

I really don't even want to know who sold you the Public Housing Kool-Aid. Get that taste out of your mouth and move on. --184.57.xxx.xx




Destructive behavior (by RentsDue [MA]) Posted on: Apr 6, 2021 12:29 PM
Message:

I do have a suggestion, but itís only good advice if there is a lot of damage. Call your insurance company. A lot of excellent LLs here will tell you that is a bad idea, and itís like everything else... it depends. I did this when there was a protected class tenant causing significant damage . They sent an insurance adjuster who deemed the home unlivable ( based on the tenant caused damage) and sued the tenant for damages. --75.133.xxx.xx
