Eviction Frustrations

My company handles at least one eviction per day.

I sub all evictions out and I if the sub needs bodies, I'll go. I've been to two evictions this year and both were last week.

One county, contrary to all the other counties, wants everything evicted, every eviction.

Last wed, I was at an eviction and the house was full of trash. You guys see the same houses I see. Some are messy with furniture in it and others just have wrappers in them. This was a complete wrapper house. The sheriff told us he wanted the house clean of all debris and have it bagged on the driveway. I complained and he said thats the rules for his dept.

Last fri, I was at another eviction, same sheriff, same mess but way way more. Something like 50 cu yards of trash. I held up two handfuls of wrappers and asked him, "why are we evicting this again?"

I was on my hands and knees in the kitchen shoving wrappers into a plastic bag and he leaned over me and shouted at the top of his lungs, "shut the **** up! You don't complain to me!"

I stood up and he tried to get chest to chest with me which I squirmed out of the way.* Come back to this point later

He then shouted, "Get the **** out of my eviction" and I started to walk and he again shouted, "You are never allowed at one of our evictions again."

+++++++++++++++

So there you have the story.
On so many levels, this entire thing just pisses me off.
What I have done is filed an online complaint with his dept.

Part of me is worried he could make things bad for me with my client but not sure if he could or not.

Obviously, I'm not going to any more evictions in that county anymore.

I'm not sure if I was wrong or not. I felt like I have a valid complaint. Why evict obvious trash? I also feel I have a right to complain.

*I'm pretty sure if I let this guy bump my chest, we would have had a tussle, which I would have lost in many ways. I have never assaulted a police officer but have seen my share of police brutality and they never lose.

I'm still hot about this and so if this is just venting, thanks for reading.

I would have filed more than an online complaint.
Possible you two were chirping back and forth at one another and he had enough?
It sounds completely out of line. We deal with LEO a lot and have ran into some that were completely full of themselves, but as a business owner, if a PO starts screaming at me with no justification, I'll be down at the station right away.

Yeah, it's amazing the difference between counties, or sheriff's for that matter. But I've never had one that required that much removed. I actually had the opposite side of the spectrum. Had a 300 CYD one that had an older skid loader, large boom lift, one building had a 20' trailer, welders, another 2-3k in stuff. He told me "Well, i talked to him and he said he's done, so it's all trash". I actually pushed him to actually walk around with me(probably 5 acres) as didn't want the huge liability of this situation and he finally called the homeowner back while on site and he didn't realize that the eviction included the outbuildings. Ended up removing his personals over the next 2-3 weeks.

Yeah been there and had enough!

Had a deputy did not like me taking a picture of his car (its a PUBLIC car). We told him that we will not take a picture of him to respect his privacy (I never include any face picture of any crewmember either) but needed proof that he was there. Man he BLEW UP, Grabbed my camera and said it is "now confiscated"..... I grabbed it back and said "thats theft and I will be happy to file charges...call your Sergeant right NOW" .... He kept grabbing and yelling and boy I thought we were going to "tumble" right there on the lawn. The realtor took off and my BIG Crew Guys came out to stop that idiot.

He got in his car and burned rubber leaving...never showed up again....so we called the Civil Affairs division and told them what happened and they said "he must be having a bad day". SwiftRES will know who the district atty is...SO I called him and filed a complaint and he was relieved of duties (he is now a parking ticket cop-saw him walking the beat in downtown Des Moines)

I really thought of stopping a taking a picture! You see they are public servants and they work for the public. Seems everyone forgets that notion anymore.

Call your disctrict atty and file official complaints! The Civil Affairs Dept can request to the Banks Atty (eviction atty) that YOU no longer handle any evictions in their jurisdiction and YOUR complaint may put them on notice that you won't sit quietly.

I just plain don't care for cops. Got no real use for them and have never had a good encounter with them.

Wow I haven`t ever ran into anything like that. Most the deputies are pretty cool. Had a home owner raising He**,after a few warnings he was put into the back seat of the police car.


Worst encounter I had we were doing an eviction and home owner shows up and deputy let him run into the yelling at us. Scared the crape out of me and another guy in the kitchen boxing up things. Glad he didn`t have a gun, deputy didn`t say anything to him. Realtor and myself stopped the eviction(wasn`t dealing with this guy!).oh and my gun was in my truck didn`t think I needed it with the law there.
Called FAS and told them want happened and of course they jacked me around with the pay on. Had five guy hour there hour back, and a hour on eviction. FAS only paid an Hour, it`s not like I could pay them $15, if I wanted to use them again. this is one of the reason(pay)I stopped doing them. I have 5 Brothers, Cyprexx, Fas begging me all the time to do them ,answer is always NO.(Don`t agree to do much of anything for FAS ANYMORE!!!)

I have MANY "Cop" friends. It is the "Police" that I have no taste for. There is a HUGE difference in attitude and the mind set of a Cop versus a Police Officer.

Wow, I've only been on MAYBE 3 evictions in 3 years.

Nothing like this.

Another Story while we are at it....

Was begged to do an eviction 3 hours from home in the Quad Cities (Davenport, IA) and called the Sheriffs office to notify that we will be there at the 9am time slot and they said to be there but "park at the end of the block out of site"... Well obviously I knew right then SOMETHING WAS UP!

OK I brought reinforcements (some ex-Iowa Hawkeye football players-3) and we watched while the Deputies showed up with the Metal Riot shields and full face masks. Dang we knew we were in for a riot here! They knocked ONCE and blew through the door. Next thing we saw was a long haired guy FLYING off the front deck and landed in the yard--about a 8' drop. Poor Bugger didn't have a chance to pick his hair off the ground when they were dragging him by that long hair to a police car.

When we were waved to come down the street I asked the Deputy "what the heck happened?" Answer: "this was our 3rd eviction notice at this home and no crew ever showed up and we weren't taking any chances"... HUH?

That guy was a professional "photographer" if you catch my drift and the police/deputies did NOT like him..... Hated having to put those expensive photographic equipment on the curb.

Also, did a $40,000 eviction in Wisconsin...ON a $17,000 value home... LOL... Stupid banks!!
