    Folks.....PLEASE read the thread.

    As stated many times now, the OWNER is in jail awaiting trial.
    He has mental issues and is protected in some ways because of it.
    He has been arrested and released dozens of times.

    What keeps the house afloat is distant family that pays all the bills while the family member is incarcerated.

    Now, I could call the Police every time it happens and get a Police report and try to sue the guy in prison. The family (of means) will likely hire a lawyer (or two) and I will need to then hire a lawyer (or two).

    The "simple" solution is not as easy as it sounds.

    Lawyers can't be hired for small claims.

    When you take them to small claims and win, send the judgment to the distant family. Tell them that the judgment must be paid or the tenants evicted. If neither happens, you will document further nuisances and sue again.

    This was the suggestion of a well known lawyer in my area regarding these kinds of complaints. It doesn't matter that the owner is in jail; it's the property that you are putting a lien on. You can't collected a judgment from him, but you can make it impossible to sell the house without paying you off.

    The key is those police reports.

    There's not much else you can do, so you might as well get your long term revenge.

    this is also a good strategy for tax lien investing

    economic relief from taxpayers for covid will provide a return in the long term

    In my state they can. The case just gets moved out of small claims. Not really germane to the OP's case, but Corporations, LLC's and the like also have to be be represented by a lawyer if they want to call witnesses, present evidence, or offer any argument whatsoever. A debtor friendly judge in the county next to mine got an ethics opinion through the state that it is the unauthorized practice of law for anyone but a licensed lawyer to do just about anything before the courts on behalf of an entity. Before that, people would just send an officer, manager, or an accounts rep to court for collections, evictions and the like. From what I have been told, that judge basically acted like the lawyer for debtors toward the creditors during the trial part of the case and then got the ethics ruling to try to stop the flood of cases being filed by check cashing and consumer finance places with outrageous interest rates when that area hit 20+% unemployment for an extended period of time after the Great Recession by making them hire pricey lawyers with no guarantee they would ever see a dime .

    Well, that's the price one pays for supporting an organization with a monopoly on justice.

    ~ Tossed out of Small Claim and taken to Civil Court. The other party will need an attorney also. They always make a buck :ashamed:
