I am a landlord (prob should not be). I have 4 renters
that owe me (total of $7202.00) past rent, late penalties/court costs and accuring interest on the judgements. None of them are currently living in our properties.
The first one came to me from a rehab place. I felt sorry for him and wanted to give him a chance-he was quite a charmer. I did not charge late fees etc. I could not take him to small claims
.. as we could not give an address. He stole from the property and from other people. He signed up for classes and he was scheduled to get some free? money...he promised he would pay once he received the money. He did not pay and he does not answer my phone calls. He owes $2574.00.
The second one came from the same rehab place. He owes the least..only $473.00.
The third lady I have a judgement against but she has other judgements so I come after them. I know where she works/lives and she owes $2913.00.
The last lady I also have a judgement against. However her Soc. Sec. cannot be garnish. She is in her 80's and was working when she rented but got hurt at work and has a law suit pending...I don't know if it is settled yet. I'm not sure where she is living but I'm sure I can find out She told me she would pay me waht she owed when her settlement came. She owes $1242.
What can I do? Can I commision a collector to take the debt and pay me a %? I cannot understand people...what makes them take advantage like this? I need the money.
