We just got out of the military and always paid our rent.

That said, our lease applications always asked for a work phone number. Start there. If you don't see improvement, then start moving down the line... if he has or wants SC, this will hurt him - the command will make sure he toes the line.

well I have the contact number for his old CO but since he was being transfered I did not have the opportunity to talk with his new CO...How would I go about finding out who is his CO-while not releashing any of his personal information--is there some kind of data base for enlisted Navy personel,in the mean time I got a good Lawyer that is hard at work,but she said I can evict them but can't default them since they are military so in other words Military personel can stay in your property and extra 30 days rent free while you spend big bucks going through all the squabbles...I can't say I won't rent to Military people again but next time I will follow the recommendations of the professionals....

Military members are required by the Uniformed Code of Military Justic to pay all financial obligations. Commander's involvment will get your bills paid in a heartbeat.

Start with his old CO, ask for contact information. Don't tell them why unless asked, but identify yourself as the former landlord... they may just be another friend of his and refuse. If asked, tell them they forgot to leave a forwarding address, and you don't have a place to mail their deposit.

Although all of this that you have posted may be true.. it doesnt excuse the fact that the individual that the OP is posting about can go run willy nilly all around everyone's property. Basically what I see here is an excuse to become madmen due to the fact I am in the military? Naw .. that boat dont float here. And everyone should be paying their rent on time.. no matter if they are in the military or not. Go to the individual's Commanding Officer and trust me.. that stuff will not be happening.

I have a similar issue. My military serviceperson is being deployed right now and she is a month and a half behind on rent. The tenant’s mother stays there to care for her children. I don't have the person's unit number. I was thinking about evicting the mother, the serviceperson's sibling and her children in her absence. This way they would all be out and would hopefully the tenant would relinquish the house.

Any thoughts?

My thoughts are you should post your own new thread as you have replied to one that is over 2 years old, I am sure the OP had his situation resolved on way or the other by now.

I think I'd be banned from this forum for life if I were to post my thoughts.

When someone's very first post seems designed to get a rise out of people, I know what I think.

You guys are mean to newbies. It looks like a genuine question.

In answer to the question, I would evict. You're a landlord, not a charity.
