State Specific Question About: MINNESOTA (MN)

Two guys live in a home, ex girlfriend loses her house and is an animal hoarder for sure. Moves in with two guys and brings all her stuff including at least 20 cats. All her stuff is in garage and spilling out in the driveway. Which now is a violation of City ordinance. The garage has a strong odor and now damage has been done to the lower level of this home. Landlord was told she can't get rid of her stuff and must go to civil court. This women wasn't even on the lease. Landlord had to remove all carpet and baseboard. Do you have suggestions as to what to do with the stuff and the nuisance. --207.171.xxx.xxx

The land lord should evict based on violation of the lease. Clean and re-rent. The "stuff" will be removed once the tenants have vacated the premises, and depending on the local law, may have to be stored at LL's expense or thrown on the curb.

I suggest that the land lord should hire a local, experienced, flat-fee land lord tenant attorney to guide him/her through the process. This post shows a lack of knowledge and information that will be necessary to do the steps properly and avoid legal entanglements, tenant drama, and other pitfalls. --108.250.xxx.xxx

Wrong title for this post - illegal occupant, this occupant must go or the tenants face eviction, post a cure or quit. --75.94.xxx.xxx

Landlord should learn better communication skills.

Is this woman still on the premises? You said nothing at all about her leaving, but I cannot understand why you would have had to (past tense) replace baseboards and carpets if she is still in possession.

I do not advocate any illegal action on the part of landlords, but maybe if the woman is gone, a dumpster should be brought in. The old "what stuff? someone must have come by and taken it" routine.

If the woman is not gone, a Notice To Cure is needed -- her unauthorized occupancy, her unauthorized pets, and her Code violations.

Are those cat's gone? If not, call animal control, animal welfare something. Fast before they ruin your house.


The house was condemned by the county and then demo'd about 3 months ago. The damage was so bad it rotted the floor joists. --67.236.xxx.xxx
