Midland, TX. i am responsible for an 8 acre property with a house, a large hay barn and 24 horse pens. i leased the property to Jerry and Misti Broughton. He works in the oil fields and his income supported the lease payment. They told me that they have 10 horses, 25 goats, 2 dogs and some chickens. They planned to put the goats in one of the horse pens. There is a chicken pen on the back side of the horse pens. They panned to install a fence between the house and the horse pens for the dogs. The communication broke down almost immediately. They do not want to take pics of the property for me (i am not local) or allow anyone else to take pics. One of the neighbors told me that the place is poorly maintained. I do have pics that show that they built a pen between the house and the horse pens, made of pallets, and there are goats in there, immediately next to the house. (health hazard!) they also built a chicken pen closer to the house. they told me that they removed the round pen that was already there and built another, closer to the house. with 8 acres, no need to install the animal pens next to the house. the lease payment has only been paid on time a few times. it’s usually between the 6th and the 10th of the month, although due on the first. their attitudes are very defensive when i ask any questions. i hired one man to take pictures. they were very hostile toward him. so, i hired a different man, a notary public, to stand on the street and take pics for me. there are large bales of hay in the front yard, tumble weeds all over the outlying lands. i am saving money to evict them and get the place cleaned.
