Nay - the DCT already have the power to enforce these rules with a $150 fine, which is far more appropriate. Ref Property Standards Act.

Problem is that people dgaf when it's only 150. They can get that by voting 3 times pr day. It ruins the possibility of getting a CBD for other players if we just continuously have to evict the same players over and over cause they keep breaking the law.
