Print out the casenet page with the information about this daughter, type up a notice of lease violations and how to correct. Follow up. What is it you'd like them to do about it now? Just know that you know? Move? Get daughter out? What lease clause are they violating? --99.203.xx.xxx

"I'm going to pull your criminal history. Is there anything I'm going to see that you'd like to tell me the story about ahead of time?"

And then do it. If they took the opportunity to tell you up-front, that's good, and weigh the information on its merits. If they stayed silent and gambled in the hopes you wouldn't actually do so-- I'd ding them double, once for the crime, and once for the lack of forthrightness regarding a direct question. --166.137.xxx.xx

CJ, why do you keep trying to do this by yourself? And you are not even taking the best advice you have received on this matter judging from your past posts.

Hire an EVICTION ATTORNEY and let him/her do their thing. You seem to want to dwell on making yourself miserable. --24.20.xxx.xxx

JB, I am just trying to correct myself if I asked the question wrong. You do not understand how hard for me with English problem.

My eviction attorney still need to ask me question and I still have to provide eviction attorney evidence.

Eviction attorney here do not like to evict paying tenant because it is hard to do. We still had hundreds evictions during the years. --97.91.xxx.xxx

She agreed to move out end of the month. She did not sign the lease agreement we gave to her. It is much better than doing eviction on this case.

But, I realized my question may not be cover some of the problems we want to cover. I just want to learn and improve --97.91.xxx.xxx

This statement, "I told her we can not deal with drugie people convicted or not or at home or at parties" has me greatly concerned. You do not want to make statements like this without PROOF that there is drug use at your place. That is why I would want an a good attorney guiding you through this process.

You do or say the wrong thing just once or twice and you will be in for a world of hurt! --24.20.xxx.xxx

“We still had hundreds evictions during the years”

I hope that’s an exaggeration or a mistaken choice of words, because if you’ve had this many evictions, you need to hire a pm that will screen properly. From reading your previous posts, it sounds like you’re renting to everybody and anybody because you’re scared of being sued, scared to say no, or just plain scared.

It doesn’t sound like it’s a matter of affordability anymore. It sounds like you can’t afford NOT to hire it out at this point. I say this with all due respect. --73.177.xxx.xx

CJ,

Fifteen evictions a year seems like a lot but I suppose that depends on how many units you have. Someone suggested getting a property manager and that would probably be a good idea for you. You can shadow them and observe how they deal with these issues and should you go back to self managing again, you'll know more and will have had more time to work on your English. --209.122.xx.xxx

If you believe a person inherited or applying is going to tell the truth about drugs or felony arrests you might as well leave your house and business unlocked with 5 or 8 serving bowls of 100 dollar bills with a pencil and paper so anyone who takes the cash will leave a name and number so you can call in 3 months if you want the money back.

Wow! How many units do you have? I seriously doubt I've had 15 actual court evictions in my lifetime. My Mother had a lot of evictions because her screening consisted of whether they had cash in hand or not. I learned what not to do from her (well, and you guys... LOL)

Eviction number depends on the type of peroperty and number of units. My eviction rate maybe a little higher because some tenant wanting to test and control me. I am not tough enough.

I realized I need to change my questions about crime when tenant answered "No" to my crime question and used "not convicted", "Not here" when I found the public record.

In some States, Like California, it is illegal to reject someone who has been convicted of a lessor crime. For murder or assault you are allowed to reject them. Butt if they were convicted of white collar crimes, petty theft or forgery -- a landlord should not reject on that alone. --47.156.xx.xx

"She agreed to move out end of the month." Is this the tenant you inherited, and is she and her pitbull and daughter going to move out on Feb 28? If so, this is good news, and for your next tenant, just copy and use the line that Deanna gave you for crime screening.

Lots of people are landlords who come from other countries and although their English isn't the best, they're tough as nails as apartment complex managers. If you feel that you're learning and getting stronger, that's what counts. Best of luck. --67.170.xxx.xxx

15 evictions a year ..... !

If you have 15 properties, that's evicting a tenant out of every property each year.

If you have 150 properties, that's evicting a tenant out of TEN PERCENT OF YOUR PROPERTIES each year.

You have to get to 1500 units and you'd still have one percent!!!!!

In plants, they have signs that read "THIS WORKPLACE HAS BEEN ACCIDENT FREE FOR X DAYS". We even have one where X is an led that increments automatically . I should get one that says "THIS LL HAS BEEN EVICTION FREE FOR X DAYS"

Evictions are like accidents in the workplace, you don't want them to happen but you should be prepared for them and work to minimize them --199.247.xx.xx

While it is state specific, your tenant may be correct that you can’t evict for drugs if they are just charged but not convicted. That’s how it works in my courts.They are still “ innocent until proven guilty” and the eviction would not be viable without a conviction . I hope they do move out as they say they will. When you ask applicants about prior convictions you have to take it on a case by case basis now. Here, if an applicant has prior drug criminal history - it can’t be used against them if they have proof they are rehabilitated. That is a very small portion of the applicants. --174.199.xx.xx

Put it this way, imagine if you owned a company that built widgets and 10% of the widgets were bad and had to be scrapped at a loss, or worse , they were found to be bad after selling them to end customer!

Or if you owned a steakhouse and 10% of your steaks were overcooked. --199.247.xx.xx

We've all tried helping CJ over the years. She doesn't learn from her mistakes and keeps making them. She needs to hire a PM. The cost of her 15 evictions a year would more than pay for it.

MO is a pretty cheap state for evictions, she is lucky there.

In 20 years I have had ONE that went to full eviction. --66.128.xx.xxx
