Notice To Quit (by WMH [NC]) Posted on: May 2, 2021 12:56 PM
Message:

Just sent my first Notice to Quit in YEARS. Nice old lady (hah she might be younger than me, I don't know!) BUT with a felon son whose crimes go back decades. He keeps getting out on Parole and moving in to her (our) garage. She has a tiny studio upstairs but he has once again set up a bed and TV in the garage, despite our letting his Parole Officer know he was not allowed to live there.

She has also had her ex-husband living there (she says not, she says he comes for help with daily living BUT Dh walked in one day recently to make a repair she had requested and he was there, alone, asleep in the bed. And utilities are sky-high for just her.)

The son moving in: this is the third time - both other times he went to jail quickly so we let her stay - she is completely intimidated by him and she had a lease.

Now she is on M2M as we did not renew for just this reason: if he came back, we wanted her gone. She has 7 Days to leave: she has until Mother's Day (!) to get out or we file for a formal "holdover" eviction on day 10.

Spoke with the magistrate, she said verbal, text OR email is fine. I sent text AND email.

Ack I hate this. But the button is pushed. --50.82.xxx.xxx

The demand in your area should certainly work in your favor on this turnover. --70.44.xxx.xx

Get rid of her and jack up the rent,with no units available other than yours i would try for a huge increase. Have you considered doing short term rentals? --72.231.xxx.xxx

Short Term too much work, Ken. And you live and DIE by reviews, no thanks!

It's a 300 square foot studio ROG, barely legal but it IS fully permitted. The tenant also gets half the garage (wall built between sides) and a washer & dryer in there.

It's not in a great neighborhood, it's a truly comical looking property and it's not on the beach - about 15 minutes away. We have several houses up there though and get great rents but I can't even imagine what I could charge for this nowadays...I guess I'll find out!

This is one I will NOT advertise and show prior to move out LOL! --50.82.xxx.xxx

WMH,

What are the court cost in your area to file formal eviction papers? Here it is $247 to file (that gets the Constable to serve the UD papers) and then two weeks later another $50.00 for the judge to sign the Writ of Possession. Most uncontested evictions here can be done in

3 weeks. --68.63.xxx.xxx

If she is smart she will view this as an opportunity to move and not share her address with him. But she's not proven very smart yet. --172.56.xx.xxx

Roy, about $150 for one person, and Magistrate made it clear I didn't have to name her "guests" or serve them. That's for the Summary Ejectment hearing.

Writ of Possession: I have only done one in my entire LL career, and I don't remember what it cost.

Plenty, you are right. --50.82.xxx.xxx




Notice To Quit (by Ray-N-Pa [PA]) Posted on: May 2, 2021 3:43 PM
Message:

This is the part of the job that frustrates me - not the notice itself but rather the steps I go thru to make sure that I have mined out a true gem resident - only to find out that there is added baggage.

I swear if screening were to have TV commercial the pitchman would sound something like: 586 credit score, okay rental history, alright income but wait there is more - BF is abusive. Act now and learn about the three service animals and two ESA before move in.

Ray, one of the reasons our studios are popular with older divorced women: they all say they are glad there is not enough room for their adult children to move in!!!!!!

But this lady has the "unfortunate" problem of having a garage. I supposed it's more comfortable than a prison cell! --50.82.xxx.xxx




Notice To Quit (by WMH [NC]) Posted on: May 3, 2021 10:45 AM
Message:

This morning I get an email from said lady's ex-husband, telling me he knows commissioners and inspectors and health department people and that while he doesn't want to be confrontational, he also knows attorneys.

Well that just killed any chance of us wavering on our stance about her! --50.82.xxx.xxx

I did not respond earlier but I think I would find a construction company to use the garage for the worst old beat up truck that might move it in and out at all hours of the night or day. --76.188.xxx.xxx

"Garage rented separately" is my system for my storage garages.

It's included in her lease because that's where the laundry room is. All she has to do is lock the dam door.

We have other properties where the garages are ours.

I'm still seething about her ex-husband's interference, threatening, bullying stance. Told me he's been in Real Estate for decades and knows everyone, to hear him tell it.

Then why is he squatting in my 300 square foot studio apartment over a garage? --50.82.xxx.xxx

Save that threatening message, you may need it. All the best as you work to retake control of your property. Keep us posted! --96.245.xx.xx

Message:

Apparently my pithy, rather well-worded response to his threats worked. He is now begging forgiveness and god blessing me and praying for both of us. I'm ignoring him.

I am, however, in touch with his ex-wife, our tenant, and we have worked out a deal. She leaves by end of May (she's paid the rent) no muss no fuss leaves it empty and clean and I will refund her security deposit as appropriate and no eviction on her record.

I will show the place with notice and she will ensure it's clean. She gave a list of things to be fixed (all wear & tear for sure.)

She was very grateful and we are good. --50.82.xxx.xxx
