Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be glad to assist you,
You seem to be very well prepared and he photographs will be a tremendous help to show that they do not maintain the property the way a tenant is supposed to. Your text messages to and from these tenants is admissible. My only concern is the letter from the neighbors. That would be considered hearsay, unless they were present in the Court Room. However, Judges tend to relax the Rules of Evidence in Landlord-Tenant cases and he might allow you to admit the notarized, signed letter of the neighbors. It would be great if they could come to Court to testify, because it would certainly help having the Judge hear from an objective witness, but you can still win the case without them. One last thing, bring in your electric bills to show that it is in your name and proof that all tenants pay utilities and there would be no reason why you would have made a different arrangement with these tenants,
