There is this guy where I work that hasn't paid rent of a couple of months; I or one of my co-workers usually deliver the landlord's five day notices. Now we have been trying to deliver this to him, in hand, that is, for about a week without success. The guy prob. wouldn't answer the door knocks.
Anyways, yesterday my supervisor calls me and asks me to go turn off electricity for that guy's unit, from the meter, saying that some boss at the central office asked that, as a ruse to get a hold of the guy, have the paper delivered to him and be able to sue him, and evict him soon. I instantly thought that was  fishy.  Although I said i was gonna do it I didn't do it, knowing that it would be hard for my supervisor to check  on me. I just lied to him.
But one of the guys working the next shift did that. So now, it has been over 10 h and yet the tenant didn't call ask why there is no power.
Would anybody know how legal these tactics are?

It depends on what state you are in, but in most states, it is illegal to use the shutting off of utilities as a method of forcing compliance or eviction. Generally the party who suffers this illegal treatment will be allowed to sue, win, and it will severely hurt the claim on the behalf of the Landlord for eviction. If I recall, the actual serving of a notice isn't as important as the reasonable attempt to serve. If it has been documented that there have been repeated unsuccessful attempts I would bet that the law considers you to have done your due dilligence.

I am a landlord in PA and I can tell you that using utility shutoff in this state opens you up to huge liabilities.  The tenant can collect triple damages for substitute housing, attorney fees, food spoilage etc.  In PA, we don't need to hand deliver the notice, as long as we post it on the door, it is considered served.  I do know a guy who decided to do repairs on a residence that was non-pay and decided to "replace" the front door, but after removing the door, was "unable" to find a suitable replacement.  I'm not sure how it worked out, but it is a risky move.

Having previously lived in Illinois and been a tenant, it is illegal to shut off utilities.

^Good one.

It's illegal in New York and, depending on your utility set up, it can be dangerous - especially in winter if electricity is shut off and tenant uses gas oven for heat.

Perhaps the tenant has left for good.

I'd turn the electricity back on and tell your management company to trust the bourgeoisie.   Wink

I'm actually trying to get an ecommerce business going myself. The problem is I have lost near 3 hours of my day because of transportation so it's hard to get it off the ground.

I take the bus to work because it's cheaper. Both ways it's $1.60 a day.

I'm not used to it, my old employer it would take me 30 seconds to get to work. Now I have to wait up an hour before the bus and it takes me an hour to get to downtown Pittsburgh.

So 3 hours is cutting me a lot of time I could be doing some extra work.

And before you say well why don't I just do stuff on the bus, well I try to catch up on some sleep on that 1 hour commute. I am not a morning person in the slightest but have to wake up at 6AM M-F.

Oh, that makes sense.  I thought you meant that your ecommerce business was causing you 3 hrs a day in transportation.  Apparently, I can't read today. lol

FWIW, I checked with a friend on FB.  He is a deputy sheriff in North Carolina.  At least there, a sheriff's department is the only party that can legally serve civil processes.

He isn't serving the actual eviction, he is serving the notice to pay or quit.  In most states, you have to give the tenant a warning that they must take corrective action or leave the premises.  If they do not respond to the pay or quit notice, then you file it with your local magistrate and wait for your court date.

Hey what part of Pennsylvania do you reside in?

I wish I could have used your knowledge about apartments in Pittsburgh before I moved. Not saying there is anything wrong with where I am at, but I had no clue and did it blind.

I know, private properties for rent instead of going through a management company is always ideal.

I live out in York, PA.  Best advice I can give is make sure you read the lease carefully.  Landlords can really make your life miserable with the wording in the lease agreement.

I think it is not legal because the landlord has a duty to maintain sanitary conditions and safe ones until the eviction.

Landlords aren't petty bourgeoisie. Gosh, get your Marxist labels straight.

Yeah, they are.

Let me guess, you're gonna be okay with making people homeless because I'm the one who's opposed to it? It's not uncommon. Schultz apparently supports cooking crystal meth when I'm the one who is saying that it's wrong (see the TV thread).

Why are you doing the petty bourgeoisie's dirty work?

Really, they're not. Look up the definition of "petit-bourgeoisie".

Augustin, do not shut off his electricity. You can be charged with tampering with a utility. The electric company owns the line and meter. You can not shut it off. You can also be sued for any loss of property resulting from the shut off of electricity (spoiled food, damaged electronics, etc.)

P.S. Im a former landlord who looked heavily into this. In most states what I said is accurate (I think Louisiana its different)

This is an excellent question that anyone here could legitimately ask of any other person on this board in any given moment of snarkiness, which this board abounds in and to which I happily contribute my fair share  Grin.

Right, evicting people isn't making them homeless.

2. Who are you and why would I care what you're opposed to?

Because I don't think that millions of Iranians have secretly become OO.

He isn't evicting them.  He is giving them notice that they need to pay or leave.

And I'm pretty sure Judaism wasn't founded by the Aztecs. Or was it?

Actually all of Iran is OO, but everyone is busy keeping it a secret so they don't get beheaded so things continue functioning as a Muslim country.

If Iran is really 100% Oriental Orthodox, I will reverse my opposition to their acquiring nuclear weapons.  A number of Chalcedonian nations maintain nuclear arsenals, it's about time to even the playing field. 

After that, we can move on to developing an OO version of Ancient Faith Radio.
