Statement of Claim
Claimant says:
"Bonita and Melody started renting from me on the beginning of September 1st 2016.Shortly after they changed the locks on me and would not give me keys for my house.On December 7th the rent was late and I was told that they couldn't afford paying rent.They had signed a lease for 1 year. I gave them a eviction notice and they signed it.Melody said she could pay rent with her disability.But i never received a cent from her and her brother who happened to become an illegal tenant.I Had to file a eviction with the court but,I missed the hearing I had thought it was an hour later.I had filed with the higher court.Melody and her family wouldn't leave until Easter.With all the past rent and damages they owe me $8,765.00"

  • Hi,I had talked to their new landlord and he gave me Melody and Bonita Mitchells new address.It is 2716 Jackson Avenue#2. Even though Bonita had left in December she had done all the talking about renting my house.Her name was on the lease also for a year.So I feel she is just as much responsible to pay me.

  • You know everything you are saying is nothing but big lies to make me look bad.I have pictures of the toilets that you and your family left for rudeness.If you call stopping by 1 time to check out my house harassment you better look up the true meaning of the word.As for calling you a dyke it was 1 time only because you called me a discusting pervert.You called me that because of a magazine that you said came in the mail.First of all I haven't lived there for a couple of years so why would that magazine come in the mail?Besides that what you and your wife do in bed is much more discusting than a magazine.You are not aloud to throw or anything else it is a federal offense.As far as texts go I DON'T TEXT.You just keep lying about everything if I had a problem with lesbians I would not have rented my house out to you.I didn't get to change the locks or finish other work because I was nice enough to let you two move in a week early so you didn't have to pay another storage fee.As for the court hearing I made a mistake and thought it was an hour later believe me I wouldn't of missed it on purpose.When I went to file a complaint at the magistrates office the secretary heard your name she told me you've done this before.The 8000.00 plus is for rent and other fees for the rest of the year that was signed on a lease by you guys.Rent is 600.00 a month add it up.Anybody who wants to see records of your squatter ways and ripping people off in several states and not paying other people for rent.Anybody who is interested should look up your background unlike me.Live and learn my stupidity.Yes it turned out my last tenant was selling drugs and was evicted.Melody told me in the beginning of the rent agreement that she was a drug addict.I have at least 25 texts from Melody now that is true harassment.Plus I have several pictures of the mess they left me.The locks weren't even put back back in the doors they just left the knobs in a bag laying on the floor anybody could have got in.I'm not going to get into the rest of the lies on their page.

  • Everything you said is total bullshit I would hope people wouldn't believe this nonsense me calling you a dyke you better subtract 9 of those messages.The public and I would like to hear those messages. You know I didn't look in the windows for hours. I never just walked in the house several times and not ever even once. You being in your tee shirt and underwear that's funny. Wouldn't that be a bit off especially with your kids and brother around. You are really trying to sell this bullshit. When you told me about that leak I was over there not long after you called me. The weird thing about the pipes I found wax all built up inside. I don't suppose you and your wife had a candle light bath together. When you were given the eviction notice in December I was never given a penny I don't know how you can lie about $300.00 plus you two still owed me $250.00 prior plus late fees. It's kind of funny that your 18.000 dollar furniture was ruined when the water didn't even reach your used couch that you two left behind. You two didn't have anything worth $2,000 dollars combined. My house wasn't trashed when you moved in the funny thing is that there was no furniture or garbage in the house. You said you took pictures of the place when you moved in why don't you make those public? By the way your brother lived there the whole time and worked at MCDONALDS. What a liar you are also why would I look in the covered up windows when you said I would just walk in the house I guess you should get your lies straight. Where are the police reports oh that's right you never called them it's funny I'm so dangerous.

  • As far as Michael hanging out at his house is not correct, and pipes caving in the ceiling and destroyed your living room set oh is that the one you left their with 2 x 4. legs. And the day you called about the leak i was here and michael and my son went over . The reason it was leaking someone put wax in it cause my son brought it home. I remember when you moved in weren't ready for you and you moved in before we were ready should have know then and their what kind of lying tenants you were. And also as far as your brother he was there more than that . This has nothing to do with Michael i talked to your last tenant wow . How can you have complaints when you haven't paid rent. and to get back to house being bad when you moved in well buttercup. why would you move in early if it was bad Michael is not one with problems. you are moving house to house . You will have judgement day. Michael does what he can to do to help others .Anyone that knows him knows he doesn't make waves. He takes pride in what is his. Michele

  • Why is it everytime Mr. Nyda decides to harass me some more the same person wants to jump in on the harassment. Mrs S. , do not start sending me messages on here to. I have asked you repeatedly to leave me alone. Please stop. Its ridiculous. If Mr. Nyda has an issue with me so be it. I could have people jump on here to and write what they witnessed. People that were there at my house. People who know me as a person too. Its ridiculous and Im not going to keep going back and forth with this. Again I agreed to owing Mr. Nyda $900 but I am not about to agree to terms that are unfair and simply not true so why am i still being harassed?

  • Jul 13, 2017, Melody and/or Bonita Mitchell (responding party) added:
  • II would also like to add that if anyone looks back on what you wrote you can see clearly that you say one thing and claim another. First you say you never called me a dyke then in another post admit to it. Then you say I told you I was a drug addict but if that were true why rent to me when you said your last tenant was an addict and you had problems. Yoj say you have no problem with Lesbians but turn around and say what my wife and I do in bed is the truly disgusting situation. Please stop using this forum to bash me. This is supposed to be about money I owe you is it not? Wow. I cant believe a place like this exists where people can just say any unfounded , untrue , prejudiced , bigoted thing they want to say without being held accountable for harassment. This is just crazy. I really do hope people read your nonsense and see how much of what you claim is just insane. It even sounds like a ridiculous bunch of garbage when you read how many times you lie then tell on yourself by admitting to what you just said you didnt do. Im done. This is insane

  • Jul 13, 2017, Melody and/or Bonita Mitchell (responding party) added:
  • LLike I said. I do owe Mr. Nyda $900 for back rent and thats what I will pay him. Not one cent more than that and certainly not for "emotional distress" . If he would like to accept my counter offer ok. If not, well he can gladly take me to court AGAIN WHICH I WILL SHOW UP TO AGAIN. Because I dont have anything to hide.

  • On: 07-12-2017

  • To landlord and tenant: The name-calling and cheap shots being thrown around aren't helpful, and there are too many contradictions to sort through to establish truth in a forum of this kind.  

    You both seem to agree that the landlord is owed something.

    Both Fran F. and Salmon K. have proposed settlement proposals based on what can be understood from each side. (Fran F: Renter pays landlord $2,100 actual damages, perhaps in installments; Salmon K: Renter pays landlord flat $1,500.)

    Would you, Mr. Nyda, and you, Ms. Mitchell, agree to either of these solutions? Please respond with a Yes, No, or Maybe to either or both of these proposals.
