Beware of The BLOG...it creeps, it leaps, it glides & slides all over the place.
My college dorm room was horrible and I wouldn't want to live there. Besides it was in a condemned building. I hope it is gone by now. What a crazy story.
How hard is it to legally evict the inner city person and have the sheriff's come and remove her and her stuff?
Our youth has such high standards don't they. Bernie Sanders kind of gal.Have a fabulous day. ♥
It'd cost her a minimum of around $2000/month to rent in that area, so I can see why she's staying put. (You couldn't get me to move to Manhattan if you increased my net pay $2000 a month, but that's me....)How hard is it to evict a person with a visually-obvious major victimhood point? More victimhood if she claims some "alternative sexuality."There was a squatter problem at one of the MIT dorms back when I was suffering through the place. It seems that The Institute (genuflect genuflect genuflect)was putting up foreign Visiting Scholars in the (otherwise unoccupied) undergrad dorms in the summer. No problem there. A French family of four somehow got a suite and moved in despite neither mom, dad (nor the minor children) being international scholars. Then they refused to leave come September and due them having minor children and it being batshit liberal Cambridge, MA, they could not be evicted. Not only the students assigned to the occupied suite were seriously inconvenienced, but the other students in the dorm as well. That family did things like going into the coin-op laundry room and taking people's clothes out of the washer during the cycle, dumping those (wet, soapy) clothes on the floor and putting their own clothes in, because they didn't want to pay for the washing machine or detergent. The kids running wild, theft, etc went without saying. I don't know how MIT finally removed them from the dorm, but heard a rumor they had to be bought out (as in given an apartment elsewhere).
AFAIK, Sheriff Deputies no longer evict.I've known landlords who couldn't evict or use force but had to wait til the premises were vacated and then change the locks, etc.
Granny Annie: I'm glad you survived the dorm ordeal.
LL: Had I responded earlier, I would've thought sheriff's could be called in to evict once the proper notice had been posted. As the day wore on, I heard from others who commented on how difficult it is to evict a squatter.
Sandee: Maybe a Sander's gal, or obama's sister ;)
Mike_C: I had no idea the problem of squatters could become so extremely one-sided on the side of a person who refuses to pay rent. I thought you could get away with that lazy, layabout behavior while living in your parents' basement, but not in the real world. Wait, I forgot that university life exists in a safe vacuum far away from the vicissitudes of the world.
Ed Bonderenka: Good to know. I haven't rented since my college days so I'm not up on renter laws. I guess evicting squatters is just one more service Sheriff Deputies no longer provide.
It takes a lot to evict someone, but eventually the sheriff's deputies can go in and remove the belongings and you can change the locks. How long that takes, and how much damage those being evicted will do to your place in the meantime, varies. Of course, that's here in Louisiana. Other states, they might not let deputies move them out any more.
Did they even call the cops on this bum?
Messymimi: Could be. Times do change and not always for the better. My experience with rental and landlords dates back to my college days which was a long time ago.
Kid: The articles I've seen don't mention cops. Can you see the gutless wonders in the administration ordering the physical eviction of a poor black "girl" out in the street and can you imagine the cries of discrimination on the 24 hour news cycle? I can see the revs sharpton and jackson taking the nearest limo to be at her side at her time of need.
