EVICTING RESIDENTS WHO ABANDON THEIR UNITS; GETTING PROOF OF SSNs
In this month’s feature, we discussed how to determine whether a household has abandoned its unit, and what steps to take before you should ask a court to evict the household so you can clean out the unit, terminate the household’s assistance, and re-rent the unit. If you act too quickly, you may not be able to prove to a court that the household abandoned the unit, and you’ll lose your case. Or the household may return and sue you for illegally evicting it.
