So, just now, I found a *warrant notice* attached - not nailed, although it would have sounded more dramatic - to my front door.
It was for *unpaid real estate taxes* which are DUE IMMEDIATELY.
Let the foreclosure process begin - for my Moronic landlord.
If y'all remember, he recently tried to raise the rent on us, IN THIS ECONOMY, when his *ownership* status was extremely suspect.
Though a complete idiot, he would have to be beyond crazy to keep paying real estate taxes, higher or not.
We called his bluff and got a new month-to-month lease at the same $2,500 monthly rate.
And, judging by the dollar amount on the warrant, it doesn't look like his taxes went up much at all - no less by $600 per quarter like he insinuated during *negotiations*.
Note that whoever eventually buys this house in a foreclosure proceeding will have to cover his unpaid taxes - and perhaps any unpaid Federal taxes.
How long before do y'all think it will be before the water is turned off?
