There is a site where landlords can fight back and warn each other (anonymously if they prefer) about these tenants from hell, and serial evictees. Put all the tenants info on BlacklistPlanet. Add photos to avoid cases of mistaken identity, no need to make it harder for the good tenants.

The laws certainly favor the tenants, and often result in the lose of thousands by the owners. Time to warn each other, these people are no more than common thieves. If they want to defend themselves, they can do it there also, but at least everyone knows there is a history. Landlords can make a more informed decision.

This is what i do which weeds out most of the tenants from hell.
Take only credit at 660 and above with NO late payments or bancrupcies
Must have rental references or if owned a house before must give me 3 months of mortgage payments
Must make 3 1/2 times the months rent (this weeds out alot)
Put the deposit a little higher JIK they damage anything, it can be covered.
Good luck!

It requires a lot of a chance to display that properly, but as you have unfortunately discovered out, many legal courts benefit the renters no issue how awful they are.  You need to try to display these kinds out before they even get into your position.

I am a landlord in new York,the law is so 150 percent on the side of the tenant,I am still waiting for the warrant that takes 6 weeks and apply for  marshal for 2 weeks,the court order my tenant to leave on sept 20,but they still stay in the apartment like nothing happen,the tenant went to the court ask for extra time,the court first gave her a week for the hearing at that time she didn't show up,the judge said 2 days later we can resume the warrant,but will have to apply another warrant that  takes 4 weeks for john doe,in another word,the tenant can stay another 2 months in my house that don't have to pay anything,my lawyer told me when the warrant come ,she can go to the court again and ask for more time,and the judge might give her another 2 weeks, it is total ridiculous,whoever create this kind of law to protect those profession tenant,a bad tenant can screw up the landlord,my suggestion is never never sign any lease with the new tenant.,month by month is the best,nomatter what you wite on the lease is meaningless,,when show up to the court,the court is on the tenants side.

my best advise as a 15 years landlord,do not and never sign any lease with your tenant,and if the tenant not pay rent,take the lose,file a motion for holdover,in that way,the tenant can not complaint anything in  court,always ask for 2 months deposite,and always ask for their 3 month recent electric bill,under the tenants name,to my experience if the tenant is on a eviction,they usually not paying their home electricity.

Howdy;  Just to let you landlords know their are good tenants.  I'm upfront with all landlords.  I've landed quite a few jobs being that way.  I worked for most all my landlords they loved my work.  I can use almost any tool a man can & almost do anything a man can.  Roofing, construction, plumbing, landscaping, clean outs etc...I trained Denny's managers and cooks for over 35 years this is where the respect comes from.  After they were through with training through me they get a big head and get mean to employees but I still respect them.  So the thing that I tell apartments, rooms etc...that I am trying to rent which I am seeking a place to live and can pay and work, is:  No pets, no drugs, no parties, no drama, no kids, no friends or relatives coming by, clean quiet, mind my own business, you don't have to ask for your money, I own my truck, 58, disabled but get around good.  Only 2 bad things are on me=My low credit score of 580 and I smoke but willing to go outside.  I can pass a background check, application, criminal check, eviction check but low credit score.  Anyone interested in a really GOOD renter with only 2 bad items on me?  Loveabl1[bawl]

This is an excellent rule of thumb.  Also, asking a prospective tenant for copies of their last 2 electricity bills to see if it was past due or paid on time.  Check their driving record too.  If they have excessive number of tickets, you know they aren't rule followers.

Unless all tenants everywhere all of a sudden became model tenants, this topic of discussion would never become outdated.

The point of a thread is to answer the person's questions. It was answered years ago. It is still up so that others can see it. If this doesn't answer their question, then they will post and you can contribute. There is no reason to respond to posts from 4 years ago.

I have a question that is very specific to my situation but here it goes:

I manage an apartment building in Los Angeles that is under RSO and I am vacating to tear down. All but one tenant have been legally relocated to other housing options and provided relocation funds as well. One tenant has exercised his full extension option to remain there until the end of this year. This tenant has been a nightmare at every turn and is trying to get some grounds to sue me. His motivation is entirely due to his mental illness and his desire to not move his hording collection to a new place (we have offered to cover moving fees). His new avenue for screwing me over has been to secretly poor chemicals in the pool to turn it bright green overnight ( I know this sounds crazy but I tour the property daily and it will be perfect one day and green the next). He then calls the health department to report us and we are given notice to remedy the hazard within 24 hrs or be fined. Can I legally close the pool and drain it or do I have to post signs saying its under repairs? If so how long can I keep it as such? I cant evict him and my company doesn't use security cameras because of the added liability of having them at a property. My main goal is I need to mitigate liability as much as possible and close off this avenue to him. 

Any help is greatly appreciated!
