SOUTH OF DONELSON (Jen French) -- A neighborhood eyesore is no more after a not-so-subtle eviction.
Neighbors on Lakeford Drive said a woman’s belongings sat in her front yard for at least a week after she was kicked out of her rental home.
The Davidson County Sheriff’s Office told FOX 17 that the tenant was evicted on August 14th.
For privacy reasons, Denton Real Estate Services could not comment on why they evicted her, but told FOX 17 the furniture had to be removed from the home and placed on the front lawn for her to pick up.
It sat there for days. Friday, Denton Real Estate Services had a contractor remove the belongings.
FOX 17 attempted to track down the former tenant. Her most recent address is the empty home.
In Tennessee, a landlord must give a tenant who hasn’t paid rent or violated the lease a 30-daymove-out notice.
If the tenant is a repeat offender, a landlord is only required to give a two-week notice.
If the tenant has damaged property or assaulted the landlord, only a three-day notice is required.
In Tennessee, a tenant can fight an eviction. In this case, it’s unknown if the tenant will take legal action.
