That lani properties is a despicable company. Those poor people that suffered from that horrible eviction, I hope everyone is doing better, that is such a sad story.http://www.complaintsboard.com /?search=lani+properties&e verything=Everything
The first is coming up to pay your rent. Many more families will be kicked out onto the beaches and streets. Here's a count down list to protect yourself.
1. Never assume that a slumlord will negotiate your back rent, they don't really care, you most likely will be kicked out faster than grease lightning.
2. Never believe a slumlord when they say they will call you back to see what they can work out. Chances are the sheriff is on his way to announce the 20 minute eviction.
3. Don't be comforted by the fact that you could be getting a loan or other source of income soon to pay your rent, slumlords don't care, they want money now.
4. Make sure you have all of your valuables in a safe storage facility, or some other safe haven off of the property.
Once the 20 minute eviction is announced at the door, everything will be looted by the slumlords crew, anything they can't use will be thrown out.
5. If you have pets and have no place to take them, be sure to run adds on craiglist for adoption.
The Humane society will only pick up your pets the next day after you make the call. You won't be able to return to the property the next day, instead you will be threatened with trespassing and jail.
6. Don't assume that an eviction notice will be posted on your door, or that you will be told verbally that you'll have 3 or 5 days to vacate the premises.
7. Make sure that you keep details of who said what after being evicted, especially if you were tricked or lied to.
8. Be sure to post your experience on blogs to warn others, and to save them hardships.
9. Always do your research before renting. Find out
what the neighbors are saying, do search engine checks, be sure to look at consumer complaints sites.
10. If you are moving anyways and not being evicted,never expect to get your security deposit back, even after cleaning the entire place.
Our research has discovered that 67% of tenants in Hawaii don't get that back. If you do get it back, consider it lucky.

Again, just rotten, couldn't believe it after reading it, had to read it a second time.

Research shows that 100% of deadbeat tenants trash the place on the way out, steal the trash bins, and sabotage the plumbing and electrical, and usually leave you with cat-pissed smelling carpets and a yard full of dogshit. So beware of scumbag tenants and do a thorough inspection before they disappear or you give them a dime back.

You must be dreaming you are a slumlord. When a tenant is in the eviction stages why would you have to give back any money? They owe you, that is why you get a security deposit. Study the lamdlord/tenant code before you make rediculous statements. It is apparent you are not a valid landlord but just a poster that wants to posts rediculous comments.

I've only ever evicted one tenant, and that was with a hammer. That was over twenty years ago. Since then I'm very discriminate on who I'll rent to. My tenants are very happy because I don't bother them, and they don't bother me. That makes me a good landlord and makes you a useless blowhard. I'm satisfied with that.
#7 Sep 29, 2011
Yea Ball head or whatever you call yourself today, you missed the story.
Your argument is only one small part of the entire picture, the posters are talking about being conned by their landlord. That's a crime, but in Hawaii it runs rampant.
#8 Sep 29, 2011
Easy solution, don't rent buy your own.
Your problems are over.
#9 Sep 29, 2011
Did you really say "Rampant?" Why isn't it all over the news then? I've NEVER heard mention of a slumlord in Hawaii except right here on this forum, and that story is suspect because it's related by deadbeat tenants to begin with. Everyone knows someone that's been evicted, show me one that was evicted without reason. Landlords aren't charities, don't mix us up with the churches and shelters. They don't pay taxes or even pay their own bills. We do.
#10 Sep 29, 2011
What a crock. The tenant indicates that they were given 20 minutes noitce, but in the update it states that 6 months prior to this "event" they were served with court papers. Seems that rent was not being paid for 6 months before eviction. The landlord kept the tenant on the phone probably because they were hiding from the Sheriff. Also, as one poster said 67% of security deposits in Hawaii are not returned, it's more than likely because the tenant has used the SD as last months rent or trashed the unit. DON'T BELIEVE IT AT ALL!!!

With a HAMMER? Balls you yellow bellied transplant you were probably hiding while your fat tita of a wife told them to leave. Your internet name Balls is just what you wish you had. Everyone in Waianae knows your a back stabbing coward that loves to gossip over back fences like a BIGMOUTH neighborhood BEECTH. Westside friends told me you are white trash and a PONK AZZ that likes to start rumors and your on their list of azzholes to get rid off. You started a rumor a few days ago that has cause a uproar and is a downright LIE. If you only knew who you were fcking with?

More internet threats? Lololol. You guys are so tuff.

EXHIBIT A, ACTUAL QUOTES FROM THE STORY:
They would have been getting a payment this month, I had two new job opportunities and we were getting a loan to make a substantial payment. Dianne said she would talk to the owners but instead betrayed us like a snake, all over a place that had been vacant for at least a year before we had moved in.
Dianne had ask if I was at home now and quickly put me on hold, next the Sheriff appeared at our gate. We were told to get our belongings and clear out within 20 minutes, I was in complete shock.
Exhibit B: After contacting property management regarding this matter, we were then informed that there was no need to appear in court now, so we never even saw a judge to have an understanding of the process.
It is also interesting that the court date was a different date from what the sheriff had originally, I'm wondering if there was a reason for this.
Exhibit C: Again there was no warning to vacate the premises, not even the common human decency of 24 to 72 hours to pack and leave.
At the time the sheriff gave the 20 minute warning, the property management company had already preselected a moving company, maybe they are related or something, but they knew dam well we didn't have any money to pay them because Dianne was asking me on the phone the same day about how much I could pay towards the rent that same day, and if we had given them a nice chunk of money, I'm assuming that we were we going to get the boot anyway? YES THAT WAS THE PLAN.
Nalogirl, these people were victims of fraudulent landlords. Cases like these are swept under the rug, because they are not brought into a courtroom. Instead the landlords use the court system, intimidation, plus their power and influence and money, to persuade
the eviction process to be carried out.
The judges and sheriffs that carry out the orders, are never informed of any wrong doing by the landlords themselves.
Since the tenants are not represented by an attorney, and there is no formal investigation into the matters, the landlords get away with murder.
Just read that story again and count how many injustices as well as building code violations were involved.
These people were exposed to all kinds of health hazards and dangers.
Do you think for one minute that the victims were on the telephone because they were hiding from the Sheriff?
It's more likely that they were on the phone because they were given false promises to stay on the property, that's why they were there the last minute, and that's why they most likely believed that there would be some kind of friendly solution for both the landlord and the tenant.
What we have here, is abuse and off the record perjury by charlatan landlords.

In June, six months previous to this event, we were served to go to court, however we had just made a payment and we had already sent the check.
Then, after contacting property management regarding this matter, we were then informed that there was no need to appear in court now, so we never even saw a judge to have an understanding of the process.
ANOTHER ADDED BONUS:
The day we were kicked out was a complete shock and surprise, considering the fact we were comforted like the cow before the slaughter by Lani Properties, we were led to believe that we would have been given a chance to catch up, instead they wanted to milk us for every last dime until they could have us raided and our belongings plundered by their own team of greedy henchmen.
ONE LAST ADDED BONUS:
There had been a few fires over the years with flames engulfing the parameters of the property, with only a fire trail preventing the houses from catching fire and blowing up the nearby propane tank. On two occasions we were running for our lives thinking we were going to be consumed by flames and smoke.
This could have also been the reason they couldn't seem to keep tenants very long at the house closest to the brush fire line. We were charged false late charges constantly but always proving that we paid on time for years.
I REST MY CASE.

As a property manager I find it hard to believe that the courts let this slide. To the contrary,the courts are notorious for siding with the tenant. I have had tenants owing months of back rent, tried working with them (waiting for my check, tax refund)and get the shaft. Do the eviction proceedings: notice for non-payment after 5 day grace period (sent certified or hand-delivered), not one word from the tenant or empty promises of payment, hire an attorney to represent the owner, get a court date, tenant disputes, reschedule for another hearing, tenant usually doesn't show up, get the judgement, hire a sheriff to serve the notice, tenant hides out. Minimum time to get this all done is at least 2 months. At this point the landlord is out $1,000's of dollars and any judgement will be non-collectable.
EXHIBT A: they were working out a payment plan (landlords are not loan companies), sounds like they were way back in their rent.
EXHIBIT B: The reason why they didn't need to go to court was probably because the landlord already got a judgement six months ago (did they miss the initial court date?)
EXHIBT C: 20 min. to move, come on, they were aware of court proceedings 6 months prior
Also, if the place was unihabitable why did they rent it in the first place?! I have had tenants who have fallen behind and they have made good on payments. These people sound like they were difficult from the get go. Oh, and not all landlords are bad, we had a tenant a few years ago who was shot in his car while driving on the highway, the landlord forgave 6 months of rent while he recovered. Also the majority of tenants are sincere and are good people.

Just read this horseshit. "Woulda, coulda, shoulda, I was going to, I meant to,led to believe, already sent the check, we were getting a loan, they wanted to milk us," all the BS excuses you cite will result in eviction every time. If the rent was paid on time none of this would have happened. I bet the landlord threw a party the day after he was rid of them.

Looks like your the one that got the HAMMER smacked on your balls. You are definitely a bigmoth transplanted mainland troublemaker with a lowlife personality. I think most readers have had enough of your big Balls stories that only make you look more stupid.
