I had a prospective tenant call me the other day, who seemed very excited about a house I have for rent. In the process of telling me she was interested she told me she was taking her current land lord to court because he only gave her 45 days notice about terminating her month to month lease. (30 days required in my state). She also said the landlord told her "you obviously aren't happy here, so let's end your lease at the end of the year."
So, I don't know the landlord's side of the story, but it sure looks like she has been complaining enough that he got sick of her, and while not knowing the laws she's tying him up in a court case anyhow. And has known for 30 days her lease was ending, but hasn't started looking for a new apartment.
What are some of your stories about potential tenants telling you something that seems like common sense not to say, but you were grateful they said so you don't rent to them?
