My neighbors--no comment--were apparently evicted from their home. It appears they abandoned ship last week. Yesterday afternoon, a large open trailer was parked in front of their house with a sign on it saying "Court-Ordered Eviction." This morning, a work crew came out and cleared out the house. After they left, scrappers soon followed and removed the security doors. I left my house at 3:30 and by the time I returned at 7:00, the trailer was gone. Nothing was on the lawn at all--which is a major blessing. Anyone know why this eviction was done so efficiently while most others don't seem to be?

It sounds like someone ripped them off. I can't imagine a sign like that on a vehicle sent by the courts.

There is a new rule stating that upon eviction, the owner can no longer dump the contents on the lawn. they have to provide a dumpster or face a stiff fine. Do a search on dyes for the original thread.

"The City of Detroit has issued a press release detailing a new ordinance which requires landlords to provide an approved container for the removal of tenants' personal property when an eviction is to occur and to remove the container within 48 hours of the eviction."

Hopefully in the future the evictions can be more ambiguous so as not to attract scrappers to the home to destroy the property after the tenants are evicted.

It would still take 30 days from the notice until the actual eviction.
