Upland resident, Bracamonte, and her husband Ralph, hired Stretton on March 4 using Craigslist to help with their three children, ages 11, four and one, but when they tried to evict her police told them they could do nothing.

solution- change the lock when this crazy witch is out the house and pack all her belongings and let her pick them up.

or

solution- when she’s out of the house burn it down.

I find this story to be somewhat funny.

Hiring a nanny on Craigslist and having her move into to house.

Not understanding laws governing recidency of a domicile or protection of the elderly prior to having a 64 year old woman move into your house.

A stay at home mom that requires a nanny.

I like the desert drop-off idea, preferably rolled up in some old carpet like any good coyote entree should be wrapped.

Or maybe she can be “accidentally” run over in the driveway.

I’d put a door with a good lock on the kitchen, and quit feeding her. When she leaves to get food, change the locks on the house. Then I’d sell the house and flee California for good.

"A stay at home mom that requires a nanny."

For whatever reason, the family decided that it was worth spending their own money on a nanny. Who are we to judge?

Agreed. Why does she need nanny, so she does not break a nail?
My sympathy for them ebbed after that.

The insurance would go to the nanny. I have to admit I’m surprised that the surnames are opposite of what I thought they’d be.

Professional victim. Evidently in this poorly written story it is said she is well-known through the court system to sue families. I imagine she is holding out until she is 65 and can collect.

Maybe she can say the magic word - “amnesty” - and live free in Nancy Pelosi’s home instead. These people don’t want her in their home. Any decent person would move out at the earliest opportunity, not fight to stay. I have no pity for her.

How about “Put her stuffed in the front yard and change the locks”? Would that work better?

In California you do not need to file an unlawful detainer for a single lodger:

“single family lodger tenant-landlord relationship. A homeowner who rents a room to one tenant in his or her house, and who continues to live in the house, is subject to this rule, which is described in California Civil Code Section 1946.5. The most important difference is that a homeowner who has a single family lodger need only give a notice of termination to the lodger equal to the length of the rental payment period, regardless of the length of the tenancy. For example, if the rent is paid monthly, the notice would be a 30-day notice. This rule is different from the rule applicable to any other month-to-month tenant, who is entitled to 60 days’ notice after being a tenant for more than one year, regardless of the rental payment period.

Also, the single family lodger is potentially an exception to the usual rule in California that requires a landlord to use the unlawful detainer process in Superior Court to evict a tenant after the tenancy has been terminated. Under Section 1946.5, a single family lodger who does not leave after a 30-day notice of termination expires becomes a trespasser, and in theory can be removed by the police without requiring the landlord to complete the unlawful detainer process. However, many local police departments have decided as a matter of policy not to become involved in removing single family lodgers, so a homeowner would need to check the local police policy before relying on this doctrine.”

Not judging, just questioning their intelligence for using Craigslist to hire an insane woman as their nanny, have her live in their home and expose her to their children, all while never checking applicable laws.

How? She’s not even a renter. Dang it if that’s true.

Then the homeowners need to get a real estate lawyer and get this whacko evicted asap. Since she’s not a renter they should cut the power, don’t buy groceries and live there until the whacko leaves. Don’t make it comfortable for her.

On a tangent this is one reason you DO NOT cohabitate with someone you are dating. Especially with California’s ridiculous residency laws. That being said.

The way to deal with this is to cut off ALL services to the house. No electricity, no water, no sewer, no gas, no trash, no cable. The goal is to make the living situation so terrible she will leave voluntarily. If California will not legally let you throw the B I Itch to the curb then remove ALL the furniture. The SECOND this B I itch attempts damaging the property in retaliation than you can throw a restraining order on her and press charges for vandalism. You must go through the COUNTY sheriff. Not the city police.

In California (and likely in almost every state), you cannot simply cut off the utilities. A molestation claim by one of the kids might be interesting.

This is quite a problem for them. They will have to evict her, but she is going to claim wrongful termination. It will cost them thousands and thousands of dollars in court. Path of least resistance —— pay her to leave. If she does a bankruptcy, it will be even more of a mess for them.

Unfortunately, she has an employment claim of some kind. It is more complicated than being a single lodger.

If this happened to me as a marrired parent I would use very unorthodox methods to make her as uncomfortable as possible. They are doing right thing to make this a national story, with her picture to warn others.Expect heavy retaliation once they do throw her out.

Time to Gaslight her. Starting at night pump white noise into her room. Or a Tape of Rabbits being killed. Maybe stomping outside her room and jiggling the doorknobs a few times. Remove all food except stuff like Oatmeal. Don’t let her sleep. after a few weeks.....she will be begging to leave.

Put her stuff in the front yard and change the locks.

And the rightful owners are sued for compensatory...and punitive...damages and by the time the dust has settled the *parasite* winds up owning the house.

Tell her Otto (with the muscles, loud music and neck tattoos) will be moving into her room to share it....He is the new co-nanny since she isn't doing any nanny work////

Otto will be the manny
