We've been dealing with our apartment building all week..... We thought we were rid of the trouble makers up until a couple weeks ago. We have a guy that is a roommate of one of our Section 8 tenants.... From my understanding this guy is not even supposed to have anyone living with him... which I only think is fair since the government is paying his way and the 22 year old "roommate" is basically using him for free housing. I would not have a problem with this as much but the guy has caused us a lot of trouble.
He was a former tenant of ours before he moved into our Section 8 apartment and abandoned his apartment. He has been gone from his apt for months and had the nerve to ask me a couple weeks ago if he could have his deposit back, of course the answer was no! Especially since he had left the place a crap hole and has been partying up there ever since. It is my fault for letting the place go and not locking it up, etc once he moved out....
When I finally did lock up the place, they guy went nuts on me... He was upset because (even though the place had no electricity) he was using it as a party station for him and his friends. I wasn't going to argue with the guy so I called the police, his smart mouth got him arrested and taken to the station where I had to fill out a police report. They basically told me I should have him formally evicted even though it has been months since he was in the apartment.
You would think after all of this, the dumb *^!@( would stay on the down low..... NO!!! he busted down an entrance door that all tenants have a key for.... apparently in broad daylight. I want this guy gone! I am at odds with myself because our Section 8 tenant is still under lease until late this year.... I have already decided he is not an asset to our building and have decided not to renew his lease.... that is where the problem lies, I can't tolerate this for that long.... I am seriously considering complaining to his case worker and getting an emergency eviction.. This may result in him loosing his housing voucher... but I have warned him repeatedly about the company he is keeping and the trouble his so called roommate is causing. I have posted my dilemma in some forums, should be getting some interesting responses.
