There are remedies for evicting a non-paying tenant. If you can afford to let someone live in your rental for 11 months without paying rent, you should be able to afford a good real estate lawyer.
It has been actually more than 11 months, it's in the neighborhood of 12 to 13 thousand now actually at $750 Mo. I certainly would have preferred to have received the rent but I have not been too bent about it, they have taken good care of the place and if they weren't there it would have been empty all this time. I am not a landlord type, my work transferred me, I had to go to keep working and I rented the place out to help me with the mortgage, didn't work out. That was not my original point though. My point was that most people that are out of work have been out of a job for too long, there are remedies to being unemployed but most folks will just collect that check as long as possible. I moved 330 miles to stay employed, The guy in my house has a CDL license, there is no excuse for being unemployed for 2 years except the free check and free rent makes it possible, If the checks were stopped you would see people finding ways to make money. It's in our survival instinct.

I have rental property in Chattooga County , and we have a LOT of deadbeat renters here. The reason they don't live in public housing is because they are felons and not allowed in public housing. Also, you can get an eviction notice but you have to pay for it, have to give them 10 days and then go in and clean and re-paint, because people that rent are trash !You are very lucky if you recover even one penny of what they owe you, and it's unheard of to ever get all the money renters owe you. I know what I am talking about , I would like to sell all my rental property but no takers. It has been on the market for over 2 years. I have dropped the price 4 times.

Take him the Sunday paper, it has truck driving jobs in there every week. Might be something wrong with his license, too mant tickets or something. DUI, or just no good verifyable references.I agree with you, nobody is going to work when they can get a check for staying at home. Unemploymnet has to be limited.

Hey, Dumbo, here's something that's "verifyable": most people want to work as an alternative to drawing "Unemploymnet" checks. You've drunk "too mant" drinks or something, Dipstick.

Easy to say when you have a JOB or are retired and letting the workers of today pay your way. Such bull shite, such idiots.
I am retired, and resent the fact that you assume my only income is Social Security. NOT everyone who is retired relies strictly on Social Security. In fact, I am not even drawing Social Security yet. My income is FROM my years of employment. Besides, I have paid into Social Security for longer than you have probably been living. My retirement pay is taxed by the Feds and the State of Georgia. I STILL pay into Medicare and Social Security. When I am old enough to draw Social Security, I will still have to pay into the program. It's called Double Taxation, so don't go off on a rant about it being bullshit when you don't even know who your audience is.....

I am a caring person and I make it a point to trust people, They lost their source of income, they have three children including a baby. Most of the time when you help people things end up much differently than you think they will when you start out. I gave them every opportunity to do the right thing but they never were able to get jobs good enough to make a difference. I am 330 miles away from the property, that makes it difficult.
Caring people are needed these days. You shouldn't trust people that you don't know. As a business person, you can't let that business relationship become personal. One remedy for your tenants could have been to get them connected with the United Way or a local agency to help them with temporary housing. With the non-paying tenants set up in temporary housing by the United Way or a local agency, you would have been able to rent your house to a paying tenant without having to put your non-paying tenants out on the street.

You could probably strike a deal with a real estate agent to manage the property for you. The agent would receive a percentage of the monthly rent, and you would set up an escrow account to take care of expenses relating to the house.

Always have your tenant sign a lease that is written in your favor. If you decide to use an agent to manage your property, be sure and have a contract with that agent so that there will be no misunderstandings.

You are absolutely correct. At age 57, I've paid into Social Security for 39 years and intend to use every penny I paid into it if I live long enough.

Definitely voted "D". I'm really annoyed by the Republican party of "No". President Obama could have done so much more if it weren't for those blocking his efforts. If his race or creed were unimportant (and they should be -- it's the US).

The Republican Party are advocates but not for those who make less than 1 million dollars a year. Since I'm not one of those fortunate souls, the Republican Party does not represent my interests.

That's why they're voting against extended unemployment benefits. That's why they're voting to extend the Bush tax cuts.

If obama and his democratic party is doing so much for you how can you justify his using our tax money to help the big shots in the financial companies like Goldman Sacks rather than give a tax break to the small business people? Your logic has gone askew, the democrats are now for the multimillionaires like the unions and big car companies. You need to study and update your economics education. The Republicans were against this spending, and tax breaks for those that worked and paid the taxes.

I agree lighteredknot. Mostly uneducated blacks voted democrat except for the really "educated" honkeys that did but the party has not even come close to representing them for what they voted for. The sad part is they wont see this until its too late for them to realize that voting republican would have benefitted them much more. I saw Phils wife at their weekend retreat a few days ago and she is HUGE. My axe handel isnt even close to as wide as that posterior. Smack Smack watch it jiggle. Always seems like she is mad at the world also. Guess i would be also if i had gotten that HUGE> I remember when she was penthouse material, notice i said penthouse not playboy cause playboy was for really sophisticated intelligent women.

I too work and I too am poor. But I don't have any one to blame but myself. When the "Achievers" were digging in, I was smoking dope and having a good old time. Now that I have reached retirement age my 20/20 hindsight shows me the errors in judgment. America is the land of opportunity, unless a person is born with a chronic disability there is no excuse to be poor or unemployed. In the 1980's my wife and I collected aluminum cans, after work, to pay off targeted debt, we collected enough cans to earn $300 every two weeks. My point is even the crumbs that fall off the table in America will sustain the willing.
The problem with your answer is simple, just not enough aluminum cans to go around. Plus some can't do that kind of work, not their fault. Like its not my fault I have lost around $300 thousand hard earned dollars for my retirement due to the greed of just a few. Blame a republican, its a fact and its just that simple!

Have you ever thought about blaming yourself? You could have moved your money into a money market account.

Did the Republicans make the investment of $300 thousand or did you invest the money? Just asking!

Regardless of Republican or Democrat, Independant or Libertarian, this country needs to be taken back from the politicians in Washington.
It appears to be obvious that the people of this country were not happy with the "CURRENT" administrations methodology in solving our problems.
Even now, President Obama is turning around in his thoughts about how we can accomplish this without taking the rug out from our seniors or the children of the future.
Conservatives have spoken in this past election and now we run the gamut of 2012.

Are you aware that we wouldn't be in this position had it not been for the prior administration? Pres. Clinton was able to leave a surplus for Pres. G.W. Bush. Pres. Bush managed to spend every penny and more in his eight years in office.

Under a Republican administration, lending institutions and companies that some people had invested their money in, were using an accounting "tool" called marked to market accounting. Enron was one of those firms that used that form of accounting. When you use that kind of accounting logic, trouble follows.

The average person who invests in the funds that the fund manager suggests, has no way of knowing about the fraudulent accounting practices that some companies use. The fund manager will give you tons of reading material on the companies in which your funds are invested. The profit statements always look good and the return on investment on those profit statements always look good. On the other hand, if your 401k or IRA drops significantly from one quarter to the next, you might want to think about moving your money into another fund.

As one who has been there and seen the assets in my 401k drop by about 40% in a quarter, I moved my money. It isn't easy to do. You have to shop around. You have to read up on the best-performing funds. The fund manager will try to talk you out of moving your money, but it's your money not the fund manager's money.
