Customer Question
Our Daughter is living...

Our Daughter is living in a house that we own. She is a drug addict. She quit paying rent two years ago. She is trashing the house, and has alienated all the neighbors. We need to sell the house. It will have to be "as is". She refuses to move, or even answer the door. we need to evict her. We will need police help to get her out of there. We'd like discussion with a lawyer for direction.

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?

No we have not. We downloaded "eviction forms" on line, but haven't acted yet.

Lawyer's Assistant: Where is the house located?

The house is in Highlands Ranch, 10046 White Oak Place, Douglas Cty

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

There was a verbal "rent to own" agreement with her, but of course she hasn't paid for 2 years.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
