Loren, so the magistrate dismissed the case but Wife swears

Hey Loren, so the magistrate dismissed the case but Wife swears that 'this is not over.' I'm thinking that the next thing is a protective order or misdemeanor battery (as you suggested) - since either way this could get me banned from the house ref NC 42-63 Grounds for Complete Eviction. Husband/homeowner was in tub and did not witness, her word against mine etc. Anything I should/can do to be proactive and cover my ass, as it were? If she files a battery charge, will a warrant be issued and I be hauled off to jail (or asked to report, whatever?) How would it work if she files for a protective order - would I be immediately ejected just by the accusation? Thanks, ***** ***** you're well.

My mother is living in a retirement apartments and it takes

My mother is living in a retirement apartments and it takes her whole check to live there. Well they were told they had bed bugs so her friend that lives with her and he shares the rent he is on the lease also. His son foot the bill for two days in a motel room. And they sprayed or what ever they do. My mother and her friend weren't the only ones that had bed bugs in the place. My sister and I couldn't put her up because my wife smokes and my sister takes care of my dad. Well after taking care of bed bugs once they are now saying they have them again and want them out for a week to treat. I think they should have to accommodate them since they have no money and no where to go. This is really a bad deal and my sister and I are stuck not knowing what to do.

A woman moved into my home before putting all utilities in

A woman moved into my home before putting all utilities in her name or paying 350 in rent.. which is normally 725.00 but she helped with painting and cleaning..She also did some things that i told her not to do..Should i send her a certified letter stating that rent is due and have her sign that she will put utilities in her name so that i can turn them off and send her a lease? I have tried to work with her as much as i can but she is trying to completely make all the rules and not follow any..She was on leased housing and did not get an extension and some complications came up. She blames me but they have several hoops to work thru but ultimately she should have gotten an extension and it would have worked out.

I have owned a building since Feb 2016. It's a four family

I have owned a building since Feb 2016. It's a four family apt building. 3 of the tenants are good. One woman who has been there for about 2.5 years has mental issues. She is harassing the other tenants and their visitors. Yelling profanities, banging on their doors, threatening them and their pets. Her son has admitted she is 'off her meds' and is trying to deal with it, but he is young and seems unsure of what to do. The police have been called a few times, but she won't answer the door and they say they are limited on what to do. She is clearly digressing. At this point, my good tenants want to move, so I want to evict her.
