Help! evicting. Inherited renters. No signed lease. in KS

6 Replies

I purchased six properties in September with two of them occupied. They each paid two months then nothing. Could not get them to even fill out application. They are very rough people. Pit bulls etc..... I'm in the state of Kansas . Need to evict them. Plan on giving them a pay or vacate letter. Don't have social security # so how do I put a judgement on them? How should I start eviction process?

You need to study your state landlord tenant regulatios but the likely hood is yoy will need to hire a qualified eviction lawyer.

I had a similar eviction once. I lost lease and was going to be in a bad situation. I planed it out. I accept partical payments weeks late and never acted upset toward tenant. I waited a month he got rent caught back up. Then I told tenant that I was going to change date rent was due to later in the month to help him not be late but that it required signing a new lease. I also said he could have half off next months rent as a signing bonus. He signed giving me what I needed to evict. Next time he was late I evicted him. Never used an attorney. Read process off google searches. He was out in 3 weeks.

 Evicting a John Doe that has already paid you rent is pretty easy. No additional difficulty there. As for the judgement that's gonna be tough. Doesn't really even matter if you did know them though. Those types of people don't have anything for you to take. Can't get water from a rock. They don't own anything so they are essentially noncollectable.

Pretty slick!  Just make sure he's got providing bogus info.  Not sure how you would verify without raising his level of awareness...

He had leased from me for almost 4 years. During the eviction I was getting nervous he might cause damage so I lied saying he could get some deposit money back. He stayed all the way till I met sheriff at the house and he had to be escorted off property. He was a horder. I hauled 10,000 pounds of stuff left in house and garage to landfill. I put everything else at the curb. People stopped and picked through it like a yard sale. I never did notice of abandoned property to tenant. He came back with a trailer and I wouldn't let him take anything
