But there are rare cases in which the landlord doesn’t want to go through the commission process and instead wants possession of the property.

There were a handful of such cases during [Judge Gale] Robinson’s court Tuesday.

When a landlord wanted possession, Robinson would ask if they also wanted the back rent, pointing out that the commission would be the best way to get that money.

“[The commission] has millions and millions of dollars,” Robinson said during one case.

In that case, the landlord’s lawyer said the property owner wanted possession but also “didn’t want to waive the right to pursue damages in the future.”

The whole feel of the article is obviously against property owners because they had the gall to demand what’s owed to them and the return of their legal property. “But there is free money from the Federal government!” seems to be the cry for “reason” which ignores the fact that is not government money but taxpayer’s money and that the same emotional appeal used to get funds to pay for the rents of a lot of assholes who could pay but refused to do so under the protection of a mandate,  can disappear if the political winds change and the property owners are stuck with an occupied structure that they cannot make money out of it.

I read in another article that some owners are evicting no-paying tenants and then turning around and selling the property: How dare they! (Part 2)  And again, do what you want with your goods is somehow shameful and immoral, but somehow not paying for services provided is morally righteous because there is a pandemic excuse. My take is that the owners got a nice fat offer and being tired of dealing with the fact that the monies owe were not coming in, they would rather get rid of the headache for a tidy profit. And I cannot blame them for that since they are not in the public housing business.

I am amazed that some lefty in congress has not come out with a proposal to expand Eminent Domain to seize private rental housing and give a chance to the poor families that “cannot pay [coughbullshitcough] rent” to live with dignity and all the accompanying flowery horseshit.

Then again maybe is hiding in that Infrastructure bill that we need to approve to read it and know what’s in it,

  1. Welcome to the dems experiment in communism….
    Sad aint it? They wrail against the “capitalist “ society while taking every advantage of it. Be interesting to see which dems have “invested “ property..

  2. One of the things I’ve heard (but can’t verify) is that if you accept the govt money that there is a ton of strings attached. Such as they will never offer the full amount, but if you accept any offer then you must accept it as payment in full. If you accept any money, you can’t evict for any reason. You can’t sue residents for damages to the building. So on and so forth.

    So I can see where property owners would rather not take govt money and just leave outstanding debt in the hopes of a) actually getting a better settlement later and/or b) being able to finally evict the deadbeats.

    And I’ve noticed that it’s not just current rental properties. I’ve seen more and more homes in my subdivision being rented rather than sold. Or sold to some corporate interest and then rented. The great reset indeed.

    1. Rule #1: Never take Government money.
      Rule #2: See rule #1.

      Seriously, every dollar the gov gives away for free has so many strings attached that it is not really worth the effort. Very few exceptions. Very few.

  3. “I am amazed that some lefty in congress has not come out with a proposal to expand Eminent Domain to seize private rental housing”

    That’s because their handlers don’t want them to. They want Joe Average to sell the building so the corporates can buy them up and make more billionaires for the lefty’s to hate.

  4. @Tantiv V: “That’s because their handlers don’t want them to. They want Joe Average to sell the building so the corporates can buy them up and make more billionaires for the lefty’s to hate.”

    Exactly. And I would wager my favorite set of golf clubs that many, perhaps most, of those corporate purchasers are Chicom fronts.

  5. When the news and officials soundbites can be spliced in to any given chapter in Atlas Shrugged we are well and truly hosed. I’m expecting one house, one business, non-competitive business practices any day now.

  6. The Dems don’t oppose landlords per se, they just oppose landlords who don’t make massive political donations. The Leftists who scream at a landlord with one property are perfectly OK with Blackrock owning a dozen subdivisions.
