I did make it to the rally, it was so nice to meet everyone. I had hoped to go back today, but the police were at my house once again. No, I did not get into trouble for anything, there just happens to be someone who rents here who is not paying for it anymore and I guess there is not much I can do about it. He said he stole my wallet, but changed his tune quickly when they showed up. So now I guess I look live the village idiot and they say, "Try to ge along."
Only God can understand the CA rules for all this, so I am kind of stuck here with him wondering, what next? Burn down the Airstream out back? One officer actually said I could get in trouble for misusing the 911 and all I could think was, so I guess he has to hit me for it to be a real emergency? I think I need a little help from a lawyer standpoint...Any ideas out there?

I would rather be at the rally than sitting out here in the cold writing this at 2 in the morning with no heat in my house. Just wait till he wakes up and finds out the water is off too. By Monday, there will be no electriciy, you can all guess why.....

Carol,

Find out what the tenant/landlord laws are where you live. You would be able to evict him at some point, and might be able to write up a petition yourself and go into court without an attorney.

Go to the Circuit Clerk's Office in your county and ask about it. You will need documentation.

Good luck.

Maggie

Carol,
If I understand it, he is no longer a tenant but a guest....

You have guest that won't leave and the authorities refuse do anything about it. Under what California law is an unwanted guest allowed to stay?

A visit to the judge is in order.

Good Luck...Godspeed

Bob

Oh Carol, Now what have you gotten yourself into? LOL The advice above is very good. I know here in NC its quicker to foreclose than it is to evict. Good Luck and hey, lesson learned right? Now when are you going to start submittting your stories to reality tv? I want to be able to say "I knew you when.." Please take care, we really don't want anything bad to happen to you.

Carol, just put some honey on the tree and no worries,bears love honey and well never bother you.They go to sleep after eating honey,acts as a sedative so I have been told.

Find out what the tenant/landlord laws are where you live. You would be able to evict him at some point, and might be able to write up a petition yourself and go into court without an attorney.

You guys are so funny, I love this forum, who needs TV around here. I think part of my story is on another channel. Bear story or Survival Boondocking, take your pick, I let a moderator know what to do if it gets worse. Hey, you know who my dad is, do you really think he raised some ninny? If I could survive two weeks in the Sahara, alone with a band of Tuareg nomads and not get killed by the idiot who stepped out on the same road I was traveling on, who shot and killed a tourist in broad daylight, do you think you have to worry very much about me? I am so ready for this day to get going and then be over so I have another funny story to tell you

Your friend,

No one thinks you're a ninny, Carol, but we do worry about you a bit!

If he's served papers already, I'd have the sh--bum arrested and jailed if he so much as gets verbally threatening. What about an order of protection?

I did think of that, but the self help place at the courthouse said it could be a problem, that if I had a restraining order, how would I catch him to serve him, since he has the papers already, I suppose it is time to made a little trip back to the courthouse....

Carol, you're not alone in your bear interactions. Way up North, a bear ate an airplane. Here's a link to the article (you'll have to scroll down to it) with photos:2010 Night Bear Eats Piper Cub

You wouldn't serve him with an Order of Protection, the police would do that. Once he has been served, though, he has to abide by it or face court consequences.

You would have to go to the courthouse to file it, and have to give specific details as to what he has done and said that is threatening/why you need it. If you don't have anything other than that he is annoying, the judge probably won't issue it.

Just a thought.


Maggie

It's not a video, it's a news article, with photos attached. There are links to other articles above it, so you have to scroll down to find it. The bear even ate the tires off the plane.

We did see that thread. There are just a few too goofy and downright dangerous people out there to suit Doug, who never travels in-country without a weapon. He has a permit and training and would use it if necessary----fortunately, that opportunity has never presented itself.

Per the Tommy Lee Jones character in "No Country for Old Men"---"Who ARE these people!!!"

You are all getting me off to a great morning, I am in such a good mood that I am letting the dogs eat potato chips for breakfast! I had enough time to digest this thread and a few others, so for the recap, guess what? I can finally nail him! He stole my wallet, I have received alerts from my bank, actually both banks, that money is missing, overdrawn, possibly fraud has been committed, am I missing anything, does this sound more than irritating to you, I bet I win, at last............

Carol, first of all, laws are different in every state. In some, tenants are well protected because of too many scummy landlords, in others, tenants have few protections. There are bad landlords and bad tenants, and one hopes they find each other.

It takes a while to evict someone for nonpayment—it can take months. Tenant has time to file an answer, then can request time to get a lawyer, file motions, etc., etc. In some states it may be illegal to turn off utilities, so you need to check that. In my experience that applies to multiple dwellings only (usually 4 or more apartments), but I don't know about Cal. A clever, experienced deadbeat can extend the time for many months before a court will order him out and then getting him out can be a hassle. Eviction is a civil matter and cops don't have much to do with that. In some states the sheriff will remove the tenant's personal property when the order is final and put it on the sidewalk. In other states you may have to ask the court to hold the tenant in contempt so he can be arrested to get him out.

It is easier to get a restraining order if you have a domestic relationship with someone (I'm not suggesting that). Maggie speaks of an order of protection which sounds like the same thing. If someone threatens you (best to have a witness), and the cops won't do anything about it, go to the district attorney and tell them about it. I can't tell whether you are being threatened, or there's something menacing about this guy, but it's not wimpy to make yourself and your Airstream scarce and hire a lawyer to take care of this so you can do the things you want to with your life. Seems to me art and Airstreaming are what you should be doing.

Thank you Gene, I am still trying to accomplish that, my lawyer for some reason has suddenly made himself scarce and now does not wish to take any calls from me, the AAA guy came but said he could not pull the trailer, his tires got muddy, he left, I called that mechanic I like so much, he came even though it is SuperBowl Sunday, he said he and his two buddies would move in since I have so much room, he will come back later, but I think he is kidding about moving in, I do not care when or where we move, I will be happy when it is over. You know who left, but came back, he is in his room.......cclarkego
