Landlord Venting - Let's Hear It!

2 Replies

First of all, let me start by saying that I'm not upset about anything at the current moment and am writing this topic in more of a lighthearted mindset. Yes, there are times when I get those calls/texts from tenants that make me want to pound my head into the wall, as I'm sure most of you do as well, but I thought it would be fun to share some of those issues with the hopes of learning/teaching and potentially avoiding them in the future! I'm sure many of these issues have happened on numerous occasions and what's the next best way of learning after past experiences? Learning from other people's past experiences! So Let's Hear Them!

I'll go first.

When you show a house to a prospective group of college students. Only to find out they aren't looking to move in for another 9 months and were hoping you could hold it for them. #ImNotMoneyBagsMcGee

@Ted Rud When you are in an upscale community and the residents demand maintenance to come fix their jiggly toliet handle ASAP! That or when the residents demand we imeditately tow a person who parked in their spot. The list goes on! Thank you for letting me vent!

I really dislike when they destroy toilets.
