    My friend rents apartment to this guy who has not paid rent in 3 months. Today he drives up in an 87 Jaguar to clean out his apartment. Don't believe he has paid up his rent either. He yells out to me, " Hey see my new baby?" Pointing to the Jag. I say Yeah thats cool. He says, "Yeah I got a sweet deal on it...2 of them actually...an 87 & an 84 Jag." I almost say is that where your rent money is?? I see my friend over there talking to him but no money forth coming. what a big goober.

    Everytime he DOES give my buddy some money he argues he is NOT behind on rent. My friend has put up with way too much from this hoser. He owes tons of child support as well.

    Easier to evict and get someone in who will pay rent. Small claims is such a PITA.

    If he won't pay his court ordered child support why would he pay his rent?

    I've never had to rent an idiot. They tend to come for free with whatever I do.

    OK, old-school TV reference. . . . the time on Newhart where Bob is stuck in the stocks.

    Then Larry Darryl and Darryl show up. :rofl:

    Why not do both? Small claims court is not a PITA, it's about 4 hours out of your life. If he's owed a couple of grand how much is that in an hourly rate? There are several mechanisms for enforcing civil judgments.

    People always talk about what a pain small claims court is. I'm convinced none of those people have ever tried it.

    Getting the judgement is easy, collecting is a entirely different situation. BTW I've been to small claims over 100 times.

    Exactly! If they wouldn't pay before court, there's a 95% chance they aren't going to pay AFTER court.

    I had a tenant move out recently and he wanted to know when he would get his deposit back. He left one bedroom painted like this:

    If your friend can proove the guy does not pay his rent, and can cover his own rear, then, and I would ask an attorney about any legal ramifications (sp.), tell the bum you are going to run a notice in the paper about what a schmuck he is. LOL! He isn't going to pay his rent anyway, so what the heck does your buddy have to loose. I think the satisfaction would be very fufilling.
