hi all: (**i also posted this in the general forum, but thought there might be more specific ideas here. thanks in advance)
i need some help, looking for anyone who has dealt with this in the past. i’m in atlanta, ga.
here’s the situation:
single family house (fixer upper), owned by two people who are not a couple, let’s call them “jane” and “bob”
in exchange for some cash, bob quit claims his interest to jane, who then sells the house to me. everything’s fine, bank’s happy, title co’s happy and we closed last month.
bob’s only request was 30 days to move, which i granted him. well, 30 days has come and gone and bob is sill in the house. he’s not malicious, rather he’s an unemployed wino sort who isnt exactly rushing to leave.
my question is, is there anyway, besides eviction/dispossary court to get him out FAST? i filed eviction papers yesterday and the whole process could take a month or two if we have to have a hearing, which i obviously want to avoid.
since he isnt and never was a “tenant” (there was never any lease of any kind), can i call the police and have him removed for trespassing? any other ideas?
