Evicting tenant, contract for deed in Missouri
Asked May 16, 2007, 02:10 AM
I am attempting to evict my tentants for lack of payment for the last eight months. I have had lawyers send letters giving them thirty days to move and they refuse. My last attempt was with a lawyer to take them to court and have them evicted. On the day of court we receive information stating they are counter-suing me for breaking the contract. I have not broken the contract. My lawyer is demanding an additional $3000 to continue the lawsuit. I am not able to come up with the money and the house is going to be repossesed. My father co-signed and is going to kill me. Plus the next court date is not for another 2 months. I can not afford to keep paying the payments so they can live there for free. Is there any way to evict my tenants on a contract for deed without paying out the nose in court costs and lawyer fees?
