    Is something wrong with judicial system here?. Tenant was served quit notice, fine.

    What happened to follow up?. Cant his children handle holdover case against the tenant before it got to this unfortunate incident?.

    They can’t hire attorney for speedy recovery of their property?.

    When it comes to deadbeat tenant, landlord dont argue with them. Just go through judiciary and done with it to avoid unnecessary pain
