Bellevue Serial Squatters Facing Fourth Eviction While Landlord Runs for State Senate

View at X


Deadbeat tenants Sang and Youjin Kim are now facing eviction for the fourth time after failing to pay rent on a $2M house in Bellevue. Landlord Jaskaran Singh knows the courts are still backed up but is patiently waiting it out.

He’s now ramping up for more protests and is also running for WA State Senate to help fix this broken system.

Meanwhile, it’s unclear if King County Bar Association’s Housing Justice Project will represent the Kim’s this time around. HJP has been getting hammered for using close to $90K in taxpayer dollars to bail out these Korean nationals.

Unlawful Detainer Documents

The Kims have been served with a fourth unlawful detainer. At this point, most reasonable people know that these people are not low-income and have a long track record of running these hustles.

Jaskaran Singh Runs for State Senate

While Singh faces another long drawn-out process, he is trying to make the best of this situation. He’s now running for a State Senate seat, hoping to change the system that’s hurting so many mom & pop landlords.

Evidence of Employment

It’s unclear what Sang does for a living. But according to Forever You Aesthetic’s website, Youjin is a “Licensed Aesthetician” at the Bellevue location. So she clearly has a job and can afford rent.
