Okay, this is a vent...
I have a rental house in Alabama. The tenant hasn't paid her rent since August (she moved in the first of June). On top of unpaid rent, she owes me about $700 for the utilities she didn't put in her name and part of the deposit. So, at this point, she's in the hole to me for several thousand dollars.
Yes, the eviction papers have been filed - several weeks, maybe even over a month ago. But there she still lives, with her $60,000 Hummer sitting out in front. Rumor has it she has 7 dogs living on the property (she's "authorized" for two). But apparently, according to my lawyer, she can stay until the sheriff gets around to physically moving her, her Hummer and her seven dogs out.
HOW IS THIS FAIR???? Why does someone who has broken a contract, who is putting my property at risk, have the right to live there after she stops paying to live there????? Why does she have more rights than I do???
Someone explain to me how this makes sense. I just don't get it.
