bad roommate

not for me, for my gf, but...

she has a shitty roommate, hes so bad that the landlords are evicting him and he has until the end of the month to leave.

long story short, hes a slob...

he has pets that he doesnt look after, and while my gf is at work, he sits at hoome (unemployed) and lets his pets piss and shit all over the suite, which has resulted in her black leather couch being completely destroyed and having to have it thrown out.

he agreed to pay her for it, but hes got a few days left and is avoiding her at all costs claiming that hes "lost his phone and wallet"...(aka he cant pay his bills so they've probably cut his phone)

shes curious if theres anything she can do here? shes already threatened him to take him to small claims court and etc for all the other things he owes her money for and etc... but she just wants to know if theres any way she can just make him pay...by like holding something of his or just pulling the asshole card and "accidently ruin" something of his of equal value..

any one know of anything? or if its a lost cause and just stay pissed and treat him like shit till the day he leaves...which shes also scared of because the day he leaves, she'll be at work, and shes scared he'll take things of hers.

A. why was he not kicked out if unemployed for too long and always borrowing money
B. Why did he move in if he cant be trusted
C. why was he not kicked out for being a slob and ruining the house and personal possessions.

Should have been told to leave after the issues started to appear,NOT after everything has gotten to the point of being evicted. I dont believe there is any thing she can really do other then take a lose on it.. maybe someone else knows of something she can do....

Best of luck

he had a job for the first 2-3 weeks when he moved in

she had only met him for a screening prior to moving in, and im assuming he bullshitted his brains out

she told the landlords constantly, and even they tried to give him the benefit of the doubt...but now its come to this...

i was at her place last weekend, the landlords come in, take one smell, and look around in disgust saying the entire place smells like a fucking litter box..

shes an extremely clean person, and when she has to clean up after someone and basically be a mother to someone whos older than her...it gets annoying...and she has told him to clean up from the start, she has all the texts etc to prove it...she would text him to please clean his dishes, hed reply saying "sure ill do it after lunch", she'd come home at 9pm...now theres even more dishes...ive seen the way he acts and lives, its flat out disgusting...its not like he started to live like this all at once, when he moved in, he was clean...then i guess he lost his job...then he started to not clean, leave dirty dishes for up to 5 days on the kitchen counter...would walk around on the carpets with his shoes on leaving mud stains...now theres cat piss stains on everything, the walls, the carpets, furniture, cat are clawing the sides of the reclining chairs...

shes on the verge of having a mental breakdown and beating the shit out of him hahaha

Taking a guy to small claims court when he's
-unemployed
-can't pay his phone bill
-someone you met off craigslist

Sounds like a plan.

Cut your losses. WTF took her so long.

Yup lol, but at least with a court order he'll be forced to get the money opposed to just dodging her every chance he gets till she gives up

TBH here.. Tell her to TAKE THE DAY OFF when he moves out.

He sounds like a guy who would take abunch of her shit with him on the way out. And once he's gone your pretty much SOL if you can't contact him. (No phone or any information)

To the point where he's ruined your gf's shit, I'd say it's either small claims court or just let it be. IMO I'd be pissed off, but the hassle of court just isn't worth it to me, I'd rather burn something he loves right infront of his face.

She's already started to have to move virtually everything she owns into her bedroom for that reason...whatever's left out are the large items, sofas, chairs, china cabinet...etc

I've told her to take the day off but she says she can't...but if anyone is free to sit there and supervise him, she'll give you all the beer you like to just sit n supervise him lol

I feel like Gridlock and Dino can provide some advice here.

Side note, don't take his shit. You can't do this ransom situation thing. It isn't going to work and will actually work against you.

I've moved this to VOT (with a redirect) so that Dino and Grid will likely see this.

threaten him with the small claim court. But since you know he probably can't pay, try to settle with him by having him clean the entire apartment properly including that couch!

There isn't really anything she can do in regards to recouping money under the residential tenancy laws. Also, taking someone to small claims for a couch is ridiculous, a waste of time, and a waste of tax payers' money. At most, she would get $100 for it....and that is a stretch.

Going forward, if she chooses to do this again, she can protect herself by having the roommate sign a tenancy agreement with her. Essentially, she would be the "landlord" and the roommate would be the "tenant". This works great for these types of situations (renting a room, etc). She takes a security deposit from the tenant/roommate (including a pet deposit in required) which will protect her belonging and any damage to the apartment that was not caused by her.

This 'tenancy agreement' would also allow her to evict a bad roommate for any clause of the tenancy act that he/she breaks. She will, however, need to talk to her landlord to make sure it is okay, because it could turn into a sub-lease issue should she ever leave and some agreements do not allow a property to be sub-lease or have different rules and regulations pertaining to them.

Personally, I do not like having my tenants rent a room to someone else as all potential renters need to be properly vetted. Credit, reference, etc all need to be checked and I can not guarantee that this has been done to any standard. Normally when one of my tenants has another person move in we will amend the tenancy agreement to include all people living there...this allows all occupants to be treated equally and avoids problems when one of them moves out.

As an aside, your gf is VERY lucky that she is not being evicted as well. Yes, I understand that she may have not cause damage, mess, etc to begin with, but she is essentially responsible for the rental property. She also needs to know that any damage created by this roommate is her problem...she will have to clean and repair anything problems and if not, will have to pay for them. I would sincerely thank her landlords for not going after her for all of this...

Apart from the pissed on couch, what else does he owe her money for?

What kind of lease did she get into in this apartment if any?

Have your girl secretly audio record him reassuring repayment then when he doesnt pay, the courts should compensate something worth the trouble.
