If we boot out the nonpaying renters can the Millenials finally afford a home?

Ha. The only reason the sellers are in a hurry to evict is they're looking at the best prices in like forever.

Anyone who is at risk of eviction needs to take a good look in the mirror and ask themselves why they suck so hard at life that they literally need to steal from others.

Go try and stay at a hotel indefinitely if you think you have a right over someone else's property without payment for services rendered.

Stop. Enabling. Thieves.

The vast majority of the United States has been open for close to a year (notwithstanding the fact that most of the USA never shut down in the first place.) If you still don't have a steady paycheck this late in the game, you need to accept that you're probably moving down a peg on the income scale permanently. The moratorium is going to end eventually, so for many in difficult financial situations this is just prolonging the inevitable. I'd be making plans to GTFO like it was 2008 and taking everything of value with me before the bank forecloses.

They're fighting the wrong people.
Landlords need tenants, and if they evict them, 1/3 of tenants are going to have black marks on their record, and landlords' standards aren't going to make sense any more.
Their problem is with the banks.
The government can easily tell the banks to stop, tell them to hold off, or pay them.
But the landlords have no influence over the government. The banks do.

You do know that every GSE, FHA, and VA mortgage has been under a foreclosure moratorium for over a year, right?  Cripes, that's not also not counting state/local moratoriums...

Ever met a realtor who is living in an unsold empty property.  It's a perk.

Now that lumber has quadrupled in price since last year, those house prices have jumped one entire level.

People are allowed to own things in this country. If someone wants to own an empty house, why shouldn't they be able to?

This is no different than you trying to force owners of cars to allow people to use them at night since there are tons of people who need cars and millions of cars sitting idle in garages overnight.

Trying to upend private property laws simply because you disagree with the manner in which some people use their property is unconscionable cowardice. You are allowed to use your stuff in whatever manner you want.

Want to burn down your home? You can.

In fact, the local fire department would be happy to use it as a local training action. Hell, even the EPA likes this idea ...

https://www.epa.ohio.gov/portals/41/s​b​/publications/burninghouse.pdf

If you try to take my shiat, I'll just burn it down. Fark around and find out.

Wanderlusting: take a good look in the mirror


Not surprised that 1) you're a landlord or 2) that you're incapable of doing this yourself.

Owning something isn't work. Your money never "works" for you. You feed off of other people's work in a system that's disqualified those people from the ownership you take for granted.

For once, someone's sitting on the other side of the see-saw, and you can't do anything but cry about being a tiny bit lower than the top.

The Uber-liberal EPA literally tells me how I can burn down my house and you're getting mad ... at ME?

https://www.epa.ohio.gov/portals/41/s​b​/publications/burninghouse.pdf

Private property is a cornerstone of our country. I'd sooner burn it all down than watch some scumbags get use of my shiat without recompense.

Again. It's MINE. If I want to throw MY car in the shredder, it's MINE to do with what I want.

If you want use of it, pay for it or find someone else to give it to you for free.

Or the government can just seize all the property and abolished rent all together?

My Dog, what a very telling reaction to me idly musing "isn't it weird that we have more empty houses than homeless people?"

I didn't even get around to saying landlords are ghouls, but thank god you were here to say you'd rather burn houses down than have somebody live in them without paying you!

Make it illegal for property to sit idle.
After 6 months the government should be able to seize it and rent it at a reasonable price to people who need it

When the eviction ban is finally lifted, a whole lot of people are going to be completely surprised that they do, in fact, have to pay all the rent they owe.

Just have the BidenHarris eminent domain all the homes in the US.  Then put people in them according to their need, and location based on their skills.  Problem solved.

Why would that be an option? I have a truck I use **maybe** 3 times a year. It's paid off, insured and cometely mine.

Because I don't use it the govt should take it for someone who doesn't have a truck?

Nice socialism you have there.

Why is it your farking business what I do with my own property.  Why don't we extend that to your spare bedroom.  You aren't using it.  You should be required, by law, to take in a homeless crackhead.

These people have completely lost their minds. I wonder what other unused equipment they are willing to seize because it's unused for part of the time.

Maybe we should convert elementary schools into homeless shelters since they aren't used 12+ hours a day.

Surely, your kids aren't going to mind the used syringes, piss in the corner, and shiat smeared on the walls each morning either?

Dude, you're the one conjuring up these weird hyperboles about the end of private ownership just 'cause you're threatened by the prospect of getting a real job that's not just buying up the housing market and slapping paint over a heater whenever your tenants complain that it's not working lol.
