Evictions can be some of the most dangerous situations in the real estate industry.

The killing of Parkland, Florida real estate agent Sara Trost is nothing short of a tragedy.

One way real estate investors reduce the risk of evictions, non payment of rent and landlord tenant disputes is to rent properties to tenants with good credit and income. Good credit and income is the corner stone of any landlord's tenant screening process. Imagine being a landlord who's tenant has the net worth of an MLB player making $10 Million per year. You'd think having a rich and famous tenant who plays in the MLB and makes $10 Million per year you'd never have to deal with typical landlord tenant problems. Thing is, you might be wrong. In the 66th episode of The Tenants From Hell Show we take a look at the lawsuit between Noah Syndergaard and his New York City landlord.

The Covid eviction moratorium has delayed a lot of evictions for landlords and property managers all over the United States. While many real estate investors are upset every time they hear there is an eviction moratorium extension, the Covid 19 eviction moratorium delays are nothing compared to the 20+ year eviction delay we are discussing in the 64th episode of the Tenants From Hell Show. A long Island tenant named Guramrit Hanspal has avoided being evicted from a house he lost in foreclosure in 2000. To call Guramrit Hanspal a professional squatter is an understatement. Multiple bankruptcies & quit claim deeds are just a few tricks of the trade for this professional tenant.

The covid eviction moratorium has many tenants asking "can my landlord evict me right now?" In some cases the answer to that question is actually no. This has led to many renters not paying rent to their landlords. Tenants taking advantage of the eviction ban is a property managers worst nightmare. In the case of Bristol, Connecticut landlord David Haberfield that nightmare came to life. His dead beat tenant stopped paying him rent for over 14 months. By the time David Haberfield was finally able to evict this nightmare tenant the damage had already been done to the tune of $25,000. David's house was completely trashed by this horrible tenant.
