long divorce = difficult? (by Chicago LL [IL]) Posted on: Jun 23, 2024 11:52 AM

Hi,

Since I started adding an extra prospect screening criteria, court case reviews (mainly to avoid people who love suing others), the screening process has been more interesting. Besides avoiding prospects who have sued other people in the past, do you guys think we should avoid these two types below?

Type 1 - Prospects are sued excessively. I have a prospect who has 5 different parties taken her to small claim court for small amounts ranging from $120 to $1700 during the span of only 12 years. Too often?

Type 2 - Excessive long divorce case. I'm not sure about this one because I've never been divorced :-) The same lady who is Type 1 above (has 5 small claim court cases filed against her) also has a divorce case started in 2008 and it's still going on. That's 16 years! :-O Could this be an indication that she's difficult to deal with?

What do you guys think?

I have tenants now that started a divorce years ago and stayed together. The courts still show the case as open.

For me I do not care if they are married, single, divorced or whatever.

Now as to being sued multiple times I would need to know the reasons behind that, but most likely I would shy away from someone who has been to court more than I have. --107.147.xx.xx

Don't know or care about the divorce per se, but multiple suits? No. Nope. Nada.

She knows the court system better than you do. Not good. --198.54.xxx.xx

The last thing most people want is to go to court. You are never guaranteed an outcome you want, and the whole experience can be intimidating, so most of my tenants move before the court date. I would never rent to anyone who is comfortable around the court system. --68.66.xxx.xxx

Same as others.

#1 is a concern

#2 doesn't matter - MANY different reasons for that. Might politely try to ask about it. If it's an ABUSIVE spouse who refuses to sign, or something like that......that may be different

Hard pass. I would be hesitant even with people who seem to have spousal drama. Do you really want the police showing up every day or more often than that at your rentals? --64.246.xxx.xx

Thank you everyone for your reply.

ken [NY], I think so.

MC[PA], Yep #1 is bad.

zero[IN], ok divorce is fine.

WMH[NC], Excactly my thought (she knows the court system better then I do :-)

Just Tim[AR], I almost thought DQ = Dairy Queen. Ok it's Drama Queen.

bet [MA], agree, really hate going to court. It's never a good thing.

DJ[VA], ok.

RB[TN], yep next!

mapleaf18 [NY]. Ah... so #2 is also a bad sign (spousal drama). Agree. --99.128.xxx.xxx

DQ = Disqualify

But she probably is a Drama Queen

And I love Dairy Queen

So both of those work! --68.1.xxx.xxx

I used to use divorce as a list for my direct mailers Chicago. Boy did I learn that yes you get more calls back from that list, but you got more headaches from those call backs.

Instead of just one attorney, I had to deal with two. Instead of selling the sale to one side, I had to do both sides. So I applaud you checking things out. Things that seem to make sense in the first look may or may not work out --24.101.xxx.xxx

Well,,,, a long drawn out divorce doesn't mean the person standing in front of you was the one making the waves or causing the timedelay. Just staying, if you think that, then you'd never rent to me and oh well, miss opportunity. Over reach. --172.59.xxx.xxx

The house I bought for my kid, who backed out after, was from a divorced couple.

He shows up, chats a bit then goes back to sign. Comes out, all if fine. Then she showed up. The room got cold. His gaze was deadly. She kept her head down, walked in to the closing room, walked out and didn't say a word.

I heard his side of the story. Didn't really care. I was buying a house not the drama. He asked my realtor for my number so he could talk about the place. No thanks. I will figure it out on my own.

Both realtors complained about the deal. Mine had to contact theirs who in turn had to contact them individually multiple times to get things settled. --107.147.xx.xx

Thanks everyone for your reply

mary h [MA], I searched county court record online. It only has court cases of the county. Your county might have one.

Just Tim [AR], hahaha :-D I actually thought that DQ = Drama Queen

Ray-N-Pa [PA], wow you're creative to use divorce list for direct mailers.

plenty [MO], yep you're right. It could be the husband who drags his feet

zero[IN], interesting experience. thanks for sharing --99.128.xxx.xxx
