[Resolved] Sara Mills/Sara Mangus, Portland, Oregon — eviction, theft, destruction of property
I rented Sara and her 5 friends my 3 bedroom apartment at St. James Apartments. None of the occupants worked. They received foodstamps and vouchers to pay their rental fees.
They lived there for only about 1 year and I took them to court 3 times. The only actually paid maybe 2 months total rent. The rest was paid by welfare or whom ever would give them a voucher. They would not take their garbage to the curb, even though it was only 20 feet away. At one point they had 20 bags of garbage piled by the side of the house. They had the attitude that I should never contact them, but they would contact me to fix any minor problem, which I usually did.
The third eviction was thank God final.. My pay back for evicting them was that when they left they took every smoke dector, fire extinguisher, all the shelves out of all the closets. Even took the plywood which supported the shelves. Took every knob off every cabinet, every light, most of the window blinds.
Disgusting carpet, torn up walls, debris, old furniture, mouse/rat droppings in the kitchen, roach pellets, filth, garbage, etc. Even left used tampons laying all over the floor. It was disgusting. When entering the house, the smell alone would make you up-chuck. It took a long time to make the unit look like it had some kind of hope for redemption.
They actually had the nerve to be angry when I changed the lock and they realized they could not get the cooler full of beer that they left behind.
