Re: Messy Tenant
You obviously aren't an experienced landlord. You need to hire a property management company because you are going to continue to have issues.
Why did you allow a tenant to become a month behind in rent? Why did you allow the tenant not to pay the trash bill for a year (provided she was supposed to pay it per the rental agreement), why are you allowing the boyfriend to continue to live there?
This isn't a case of a problem tenant so much as it is a case of a landlord who doesn't know what he's doing?
If you wanted babies all to yourself, you should have created them by yourself. Until you do that, children have the right to BOTH parents, especially since you found them suitable to procreate with.
