So after two lawyers recommended by our local LL's Assoc.,we finally got an eviction, long story but the husband left the apt and moved to a town a few miles away, lots of back rent owed, There was no removal from his rental contract and he has more resources than the woman, so can we go after him since he moved away? --73.126.xx.xxx

What do those two lawyers say about that? I would think so but often I find it's just better to get the place cleaned and rerented instead of spending time and money paying lawyers. --172.59.xxx.xxx

Yes you may be right,..so far I Have paid 16,000 in legal fees, and it may not be over, then there is the back rent, as of this month its 30,000.Yes I used the lawyers suggest by the local LL's Association. Lawyer #1 I fired as he wasn't doing much.

Yes this is Ma ,..not easy to remove someone who use tools to be hard to evict,. --73.126.xx.xxx

Would this be a good time to point out that you can get an eviction in most counties in Texas in 22 days on average without the use of a lawyer and about $350 is court/sheriff costs.

I don't see how an investment in MA can turn a profit. --209.205.xxx.xx

$50 he'll file bankruptcy. That's what one of my former tenants did, got divorced and filed bankruptcy. The woman was not the breadwinner but he was. He skated. The ne'er do well ex wife is still floating around and probably will never be gainfully employed. --64.246.xxx.xx

What would the cost have been if you did a self-help eviction a long time ago? --76.129.xxx.xx

Was the husband served a proper summons regarding the eviction? Was he named in the court eviction order? When he moved away did you sign any paperwork removing him from either your rental agreement or the PHA contract? Have you been including him in all of your communications for this unit? Has he filled out paperwork with the local PHA for the yearly tenant income statements? If the answer to all of these is yes, then there is a good chance that he could be held liable. --96.233.xxx.xx

Yes the husband has been included in correspondence by the lawyers notices,No did not send him any paperwork removing him from the rental contract, Er,..I'm not familiar of the acronym PHA (?)

Problem: he may be untouchable as he receive disability from the Army,..about 2k a month,.(he looks very healthy and takes cash jobs on the side,).. --73.126.xx.xxx

Most never listen to advice they don't like, they only listen to whats suits them best. Here in California, ANY JUDGEMENT CAN BE CONTESTED, until the 9 month statue runs out!

So whenever I win a case, contested or by default, I WAIT 9 MONTHS A ONE WEEK BEFORE I 'RECORD' THE JUDGEMENT. This way my X tenant can not remove my judgement or contest it.

I helped a friend evict their tenant, who never paid rent for the last 15 years. 12 years the rental was owned by my friends father-in-law. Then my friends wife got ownership and did nothing like her old man. I stepped in and go the eviction started before the Pandemic was declared in 02/01/2020.

I told the family not to record the judgement until January 01, 2021. They did not listen. After fixing up the rental and re-renting it, the Judgment got overturned and the x-tenant moved back in....sharing the rental with the new tenant. Then taking 3 year 8 months to evict again. --47.155.xx.x

Carl A [MA], not sure why a duplicate of my post showed up 10 hours later.

PHA is public Housing Administration.

If you can prove that he received all of the communications regarding past due rent, the eviction notices, the summons to court & the judgement then I don't see why you can't at least try to see if he's collectable. --96.233.xxx.xx
