LOL!!!  Haven't we all thought of using Juan's method with a particularly bad tenant?  Of course, no one would actually advocate any illegal activity. 

But many years ago, my grandmother used to rent out places. I heard stories about when she'd have a tenant who wouldn't pay or leave, she used to call her plumber.  Not to turn off the water or anything.  Seems the guy was a bit of a drinker.  He'd show up on the tenant's front porch and start serenading them with his off key singing.  (Now we've all seen the "alleged" drunk in the back of the police cruiser on youtube singing Bohemian Rhapsody haven't we?)  Image one sitting in your front yard singing old drinking songs!

Of course, I'm not advocating any method such as this, or Juan's.  Just a funny story...  Stick with legal methods to remedy tenant problems.

I also do not condone anything illegal. However, I am very curius about his method and results.  Maybe I should call his references just to hear about it.

While it might be tempting, I wouldn't.  If something should happen later to one of your tenants or the property, the tenant could claim you had been behind it.  Even if it was just a coincidence, you don't want even the impression of wrong doing.  And this ad could be a set up to catch illlegal doings by LLs.

I know I'm kinda late to respond to that Craigs list ad, to me #1-sounds like that ad is a rip off to any landlord that is stressed out with battling with a tenant and is stupid enough to fall for it. #2, who in their right mind would even respond to an ad like that? and #3 wouldn't we all like to have a "Juan". As LL we all know we must follow the renting laws to the T, if not we as LL's pay a high price.

I also do not excuse anything unlawful. However, I am very curius about his technique and outcomes.  Maybe I should contact his sources just to listen to about it.

Using this could get you in a lot of legal trouble - definitely not worth it.

To be fair, it's something one would resort to in extremely desperate measures. Who knows what the methods are.. in fact, the lesser you know, the better it is. 
It is best to avoid such situations as it may be against the law. But like I said, some one in a desperate situation may actually go in for something that gives him some results.

Would there be any need for such an Ad? I mean, Technically isn't the law supposed to be the first place to approach. Using any illegal tactic could surely put one in the cross hairs of the law which would really be undesirable.
