I am a soft- hearted, sucker, landload. I have allowed my

I am a soft- hearted, sucker, landload. I have allowed my tenants to stay for over one year without paying rent, $15,000.00 owed. I believed every excuse-stupid old woman that I am. I notified them of eviction six months ago with no success and so I filed legal eviction papers. The tenants finally moved out with the threat of the police coming to physically remove them but of course did not pay me a penny. Should I hire a Lawyer or just try to write it off as a loss on my taxes? thanks, BETHJA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: Delaware- they just moved out two days agoJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Yes about 1 month ago at the justice of the peace in Georgetown, Sussex county DelawareJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The tenant, a disabled, ex police officer, single mom with a two year old and an adult son- part of the reason I let them say so long. She said she thought her ex boyfriend was paying the rent(the father of her baby) but he was in jail most of the year that she lived there.
