That's my Mayor, hey I live on Allen. Shannon Hills has had quite a history with Mayors and Police Chiefs. Last Mayor resigned after he was convicted of income tax evasion, hadn't paid his state taxes in seven years. Few years back our police chief was having sex wit his 14 years old baby sitter when charges were filed he fled the state and was captured and extradited back he's in prison now. Now this, we are a very small city not much more than a subdivision really. No stop lights, a grocery store and a couple small businesses. Lots of churches.

We are virtually a crime free city, the only crimes are being committed by the police and mayors office :thumbsup:

I can relate to the Mayor taking stuff because his tenant wouldn't pay their rent. I did it myself one time in Alaska (furniture, appliances, and firearms) and was threatened with jail if I didn't return the stuff. So I decided to return it because I was doing a construction job with a big penalty based deadline and I really didn't have a lot of extra time to spend in jail and in court. But I did find out that renters have more rights than landlords and I eventually had to spend money to hire a lawyer and have a judge issue an eviction notice to get them out. But even then they wouldn't leave until the court sent a couple of US Marshals out to either evict them on the spot or arrest them. They chose to leave at that point but it cost me several hundred dollars to repair the damage they had done to the place plus they left the state and I never got revenge or a nickle of the $2400 back rent they owed me or any of the $800 lawyers fee.... :tantrum:

A few years ago we got up to about 20 rental properties, all sold now. I will never, ever, no way no how have another rental property. I'll dig ditches by hand in July and August, I'll sell blood if I have too, but I'll not put up with another renter, period, end of discussion!! :tantrum:

I have a good friend with several rent houses. A constant source of headaches for him yet it still makes some money so he stays in the business. However he also own another business and his office manager handles all the renting, paperwork and that end of the business. he told me some very interesting things he has learned after doing this for nearly 30 years. He runs background checks on all potential renters. The strangest thing was that he learned early on two sorts of people he will never rent to again. Convicted felons and cops! He says they are the worst about paying and taking care of property. Also if you think getting rid of a non rent payer is hard try to get rid of a deadbeat cop. :surp:

Sometimes it seems renters have more rights than landlords. And the landlord has to follow the rules but the renters seldom do. I watch those court shows you would be surprised how many people trash out a house, pay no rent, then skip out. The limits in small claims court hardly let's you get back what the damages are.
