    I talked to the police about evicting a dead beat from my yard
    Two years ago we let a friend of my son park his motor home in our side yard for what was only going to be a month, it's two years later and he's still here using my electricity water not paying me anything.

    I told him today he has to find a new place to move out, he just shrugged his shoulders and walked away.

    So I called the police and talked with them seems I have to go through the entire eviction procedure which could take months I'm going to dc the electricity in a month if he has not made any effort which I doubt he will.

    I know he has a warrant outstanding I could turn him in then have his car and motor home towed off property

    How should I handle this

    Okay kidding... follow legal procedure, after calling the police and informing them you have a wanted person squatting on your land.

    Turn off the lights and call in the warrant.

    Call in the warrant before they get you for 'aiding and abetting'.

    Turn him in on the warrant and then have his stuff hauled off. Easy solution.

    In my non-professional view, it seems they are correct...you will have to go through an eviction process which will have to go through various courts until an eviction order is issued.

    I only say that because even though there is (probably) no written landlord/tenant agreement, they do put weight on verbal agreements these days it seems, and the fact he's been there so long will be a factor.

    And it depends on how Florida looks at such agreements with respect to a scenario like this.

    Good luck, I know it's going to be a pain if he wants to put up a fight about it.

    Turn off water and power.

    Call codes and zoning and report it as occupied without a certificate for occupation.

    Call health department and report is as not connected to a sewer or other utilities.

    Call in the warrant.

    Set up your BBQ next to his open window, use it every meal.

    Make sure your sprinklers hit his windows and roof vents.

    Do not let him in your house to use the toilet.

    Call DMV and see if they can do anything about expired tags.

    Pay kids to throw rocks at it.

    Put stray cats in it when he is gone.

    Drive it away and abandon it at a roadside rest.

    Call local EPA if it is leaking anything.

    Look up Dirty Tricks to remove a room mate, squatter Etc.

    Too bad you didn't 'do it in the fall, cold is your friend.:whistling:

    Go through the legal procedures. In my experience, it's not worth the hassle trying to do it any other way.

    I wouldn't call in his warrant, because he sounds like a deadbeat, and one of my policies is to not mess with somebody who has nothing to lose. Somebody who has nothing and is going to jail, will likely try to hurt you, your family or vandalize your stuff.

    Go through the legal procedures to evict, that way if something goes down, you can have recourse. But always keep it 100% legal so that you're in no way the bad guy.

    <-----not familiar with FL law

    Most states flow in similar ways, however.

    Go with the eviction process. He has claim of residency, which is why the Cops can't/won't "throw him off". The bum could sue/win against the Cops/City.

    You can be held responsible for his property that is left behind if you don't follow the proper procedure outlined by your state's law. - What I'm talking about here is if you get him arrested on his warrant, then throw out all his stuff. You can be on the hook for it. Depending on your states laws, you have be able to toss/sell his stuff after notice is served and he hasn't removed it in "X" amount of days. One variable in there may allow you to have the property placed in nearby storage after "X" amount of days.

    Best to follow the Eviction process to shield yourself from civil liability.

    To try and get free "real" advice, call or stop by your Sheriff's office civil division, and your court house civil division. Between the two you may get the real info you need w/o an attorney. If in doubt consult with an attorney. Cheaper to pay on the front end then the rear.

    In any event, best of luck.

    Sincerely,

    TBO

    Wasn't there a thread about how to de-snake a vehicle, maybe you should post a thread about how to snake a vehicle :supergrin: I would guess he'd find a new place to live rather quickly.

    Your second to the last sentence covers it well.

    So you should stop posting about it and do it.

    turn him in dont mention the eviction... call a wrecker service Or evict him legally and it will take 3 months.....

    Fla Eviction law covers him living with you , in fact you are probably breaking numerous codes by letting him live outside your residence in whatever shanty he has , running power to it is also a no no..

    Either way you're screwed.

    Do this ASAP as I said you are most likely breaking numerous codes and he will try and use that against you, also cut off any water he has going from the house and HOW is he purging his septic... You are in a world of a mess right now cut off his access to your power and water and do not let him in the house...

    You have no obligation to proved power, with his attitude I'm not sure why your waiting another month, just unplug it and shrug your shoulders when he ask about it.

    How should I handle this = just like you wrote there DW and don't feel bad about doing it either. If he was half a man he would sit and talk to you face to face instead of walking away shrugging his shoulders. He has made no effort to help you out in any way.
    Send him on his way. When he gets out from his arrest have his stuff gone, out on the street two miles from where you live!

    Wow. I can't believe this is still going on!

    First thing: I'd pull the dang plug, this very moment!
    2 years of electricity has to have added up!

    You made a post about this a while back, didnt you?

    See if you can have it towed.
