What to do when tenants at house keep sneaking in a person you dont want there?
I'm at a mangers at apartment complex in oklahoma also manage the house next to apartments. In june a couple and their kids moved into the house and about the same time a lady in the apartments had to leave because her electric got shut off and her boyfriend just kicked the door down at the apartments and went to jail for assault me or the landlord never pursued charges on this guy but dont want him on the property.the lady in the apartments moved in to the house with this couple and was put on the lease and then her ex boyfriend got out of jail and he apparently lives there but he is not wanted there ..what steps should I take besides evicting them can cops do anything since there letting him in?

You could have pursued the charges since you were assaulted...but thats another story.
The cops wont do anything whatsoever...eviction is your only next step.

The cops can't do anything.. you will have to evict (probably the lady who is on the lease).

The cops can only do something about it if he assaults you. They will put him in jail long enough for you to get a restraining order against him. EVICT them promptly and tell the judge that you need them out in 3 days because the person they have living there assaulted you. You should file your own assault charge against him. So what that the landlord didn't want to. He was not the one assaulted.Source(s): Certified Paralegal, with 25+ years' experience & with Landlord & Tenant law experience.

Cops can't do anything if he isn't causing problems. Its not illegal to have someone not on the lease staying in your apartment (even if it violates the lease, its still not illegal). Just keep starting the eviction them whenever you find them doing this. Eventually they'll figure out some other solution if you are enough trouble to them.
If they still dont get the hint then when their lease is up, simple don't renew it and evict them if they won't leave. That'll solve the problem permanently.

You evict them is what you do.

Leases generally include a clause that adults who haven't signed the lease cannot stay there more than a few nights. This is to prevent guests from claiming squatter's rights. But in your case, you can use it to threaten to evict the tenants if they don't kick the guy out.

Aside from eviction? Nothing. There is no law that keeps him from being able to be there. The only possible avenue you have is the lease agreement you have with the tenant. If the lease they signed with you does not list him as a tenant and prohibits anyone from living there who is not listed on the lease agreement as a tenant, then you can evict. That is the only recourse because what you have is a legal contract, and if they are in breach of that contract, then the resolution is the dissolution of the contract by way of eviction. Period. There's nothing else.
Also, know that if you choose not to evict, then the longer you don't evict, it becomes tacit approval of you allowing him to live there, meaning it becomes increasingly hard to evict on those grounds as time goes on because any judge being asked to enforce the eviction will see your reason as increasingly invalid if you knew about it and didn't evict before and then all this time later suddenly decide to evict.

Don't renew their leases.

Give them notice that he can't be there and evict them if he stays.
Not a police matter at all.
