A subtitle could be "What this is costing others"We finally evicted the upstairs tenant for non payment of rent. she left a mess behind. WHile I do understand and would advocate for many people on this board who have moved and left a mess behind...I understand your situtaions might be a little different.She left furniture and her kids clothing behind. She left food in a pot on the sink and dirty dishes. The law says I have to hold on the everything for 30 days. This woman is vindictive and would complan that I ruined something or threw a precious belonging out.She would also be the first to go to the county and ask for a furniture voucher for new furniture, claiming I would not give it to her or that I ruined it. It will cost me $600 to have "1-800 Got Junk" to remove everything after 60 days. FOr a large apartment complex - that fee is nothing. For me- who will not have income for two months and who has scrapped together eveything to pay for the remodel - this is everything. there are papes and trash all over and covering almost the entire floor.Not only is there junk and trash left behind - she or her kids kicked in every door, broke a significant number of windows and screens, left holes in the wall, etc.Yes - we have taken pictures and yes we could file charges. But it won;t get anywhere. We have to bear the cost of this.Her and her mother, being dirty, has cost me hundreds of dollars. Now it is getting pushed into the thousands. "How is this hurting anyone" might just bankrupt me.
