All right, got it! Good idea!

What about felonies? Bankruptcies? Those are still okay, right?

I think those are bad too!

I posted this because like 2 days ago someone on here asked about it and then just yesterday someone I know got evicted. Some people really don't know they should move out before they end up in front of the judge.

In most places once they file eviction you have 30 days and it does not always get on your record unless its a court of record which is pretty rare really.Most justice sourts and city courts are not cvourts of record because they have no court reporter which is why you have a automatiuc appeal if you pay teh filign fee on any case they decide.

It must vary from State to State...

I've had people come back to me because I had evicted them and they were unable to rent a "Decent" place.

It doesn't happen often, but when I do evict... it shows up on the Apartment Association's tenant screening check.

Wow, our evictions must be pretty fast then, on average. In Idaho, you file a 3 day notice, then go for a speedy courty date, which is between 5 and 12 days out, then its a day or two for the sheriff. So, only about 3 weeks max, and usually closer to 2 weeks.

As mentioned, I've had people I evicted contact me about making it "Right" with me because they found it impossible to find someone willing to rent to them...

On one occasion, 5 years after the eviction, my former Tenant contacted me and said she knows I have a judgement against her for $800 in unpaid rent from the time of the eviction... she said she found someone that would rent from her if I would say she paid her judgement off... she offered payments of $20 per month...

I went one better... I told her I would accept $400 cash or money order plus the nominal fee to record a Satisfaction of Judgement... never heard from her again

^^^ Very smart! $ 20.- a month...

People who get evicted even if the court system works fast...they are already late on rental payments so if you add that up, nobody can say they didn't know and didn't have a chance to respond.

I'm waiting what is going to happen with one of my rentals....the family asked me last month if they could pay one week later since the husband switched jobs and had now a better paid job but the pay check came later... I agreed and late fees and interest would be on top of the amount...After 3 days I got an email if they could pay on the 11th!!! I agreed that this was the last psotponed date (you have to show some compession) and when i went to pick it up they told me they had a hard time but they had the rent amount but not the late fees which they would pay this week...So at least I had the full monthly rent and to me that was better than leaving with nothing (they knew that I won't take a partial rent amount)...I told them that in like less than 3 weeks the new rent has to be paid and this week the late fees...So I wonder what will happen this Friday and I wonder if they will have the rent for next month...their lease last only 4 more months..
Btw the carpet looked awful,, all drink spills from their little child and I told them it needs to be taken care off...all things taken in cosideration I'm not going to wait more time on late rent but I will go straight to court.
I run his dr. license again and he skipped a court date for unpaid tickets and his dr. licence is revoked...so to me it will be hard for him to get to work or he is driving uninsured, which makes me mad like hell! Both work in different parts of town so he isn't going to walk....

Me neither, but the good part is, I'm prepared.

I will never ever rent to anyone who has been evicted. Rather let the unit sit vacant.
