Marc Girling Quoted In CBS ‘Serial Squatters’ Article

If you live in North Texas, you may have already heard of the Schwabs. Heather and William Eric Schwab are currently facing numerous counts of “serial squatting” for playing homeowners to live in their homes without ever paying a dime. As a result of their scheme, victims of have sought legal advice from Girling Law to help ensure the rights to their property and to avoid mistakes like this in the future.




We had a problem with a tenant that after giving the deposit and paying for the first month; he immediately got behind paying rent of the second month and was not complying with contract agreements for paying late fees, etc. At the beggining the problem seemed manageable, for what we did the minimal (send 3 day notice letter, call references, etc.) After being unsuccessful collecting the payment, we decided to take legal action and avoid further delays.

How fortunate we were to find Mr. Marc Girling; even after following the regular legal procedures and winning the eviction case the tenant neglected court rulings and decided to stay without pay on the property. Marc helped us to quickly apply for the Grit of possession where we were finally able to take control back of the property (with minimal delay and physical damages or conflicts) during the eviction process Marc never hesitated to run the extra mile and he kept us very well informed of the case progression. I will definitely recommend and use Marc to help us with any legal real estate issues, he is knowledgeable, trustworthy and supportive.

I bought a foreclosed property from a county auction. As soon as I found out the people that are living there will do anything to hold down to this property, I made a smart decision of calling Girling Law Firm. Mr. Girling was very patient and worked really hard to get me my property back from the free loaders. I really appreciate Mr. Girling's efforts and his knowledge.

I'm a first time investment property owner. Unfortunately I didn't get off to the best start. My first tenant's deposit and first months rent check bounced after they had already moved into the property. They were in the property without paying for months it was a very trying time. After one failed eviction attempt and several hundreds of dollars later I finally decided to hire an attorney. I made the smart decision to stop trying to do it all myself and hire an attorney to handle my eviction case.

I was fortunate enough to find Girling law. Mr. Girling and his team immediately turned things around. They were knowledgeable and attentive it turned out to be the best decision I could have made. They handled all correspondence with the tenant from the moment I first spoke with them until the tenant was out of my property successfully. They took all the stress of the situation away and quickly got my tenants out. It made a world of difference to me especially since I am an out of state owner.

They appeared in court multiple times without me having to be present all for a flat fee that didn't break the bank. Mr. Girling even recommended a great property manager to handle the property to make sure this problem didn't repeat again. I'm happy to say that I now have great paying tenants. The nightmare is over very much thanks to Girling law. If you ever run into a problem with your tenants I highly recommend calling Girling law immediately - don't wait!

In Texas, a landlord can start the process to evict a tenant for not paying rent the very day after rent is due. But to evict, a proper Notice to Vacate must be sent. As a Landlord, Girling law has the experience you need on your side to ensure the property is back in your possession ready to make money for you. Call us before mistakes are made that will keep a non-paying tenant in the property longer than necessary!
