What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Texas
Ok first off, I am a landlord in Travis county, Texas. I have won an eviction case against my tenant. He was supposed to be out of the house today. I got a call from court and he is filing a pauper's affidavit and wants to appeal.
History, he owes 3 months in rent and admitted so in court. I feel there is no grounds for an appeal. I feel he only wants to appeal so he can get the extra 5 days in the house.
I have had to file charges against him for assault by threat (threatened to kick my A$$. He refuses to leave, now wants to appeal and claims he has no money for the bond. I saw on his facebook page, he is planning a huge party at a hotel next weekend. I printed that and hope to use it against him in court (I am contesting his pauper's affidavit) Will that facebook page be admissable in court? This guy is nasty and it has gotten way too personal, but what else can I do when he has threatened harm to me and my family? I want him out, have tenants ready to move in now, but he is dragging. Neighbors tell me he has moved alot of stuff out, but he is still there, living rent free even after the judge told him he had 5 days to get out. NEED ADVICE!
