When I did, a tenant rebuilding his motorcycle on a brand new tile floor I had just installed. UGH!

well well well.  Is there a word limit to responses here?  For the most part, tenans are wonderful people who meet their contractual obligations, but every once in a while there are the rotten  apples.

The one that comes to mind: tenant became a hoarder..refused to let owner in yet reported a water leak.... amde him let us in and saw the hoarding. Unsafe, told him to remediate or move out,  wouldn't.... had to evict. House was a disaster...

 

 

There was also the time that the girlfriend kicked out the boyfriend... who came back and burnt the house down.  (This was another state, but a friend of mine owned the house)

I'm not a property manager, but work for my past clients as a listing agent for their rentals. This year, both cars of one our tenants were stolen from a double gated garage with many working cameras. The thieves just did not care, came in, took both cars( nothing special regular cars that are easy to sell), no one else's cars were touched at that night, before or after since it is considered a great ''crime-free'' area.

I'm neither... but in the last four homes I listed for investor clients, one needed $65,000 of remedial work to bring it up to standard to list and the others $35,000, $25,000 and $12,000. That's pretty nightmarish for the owners!

     The landlord refused to fix a broken AC during a scorching-hot summer.    In revenge, the tenant moved out and took all of the kitchen appliances (the refrigerator and the built-ins).   The deposit was only $1000, not nearly enough to replace those appliances.   

     I no longer offer property management.

Have not been a property manager, but had my own rental, and within 3 months every porcelain had chips - sinks, stove, etc.  Screens were missing, and several lights were missing.   Also they had a cat that peed, and there were to be no PETS.   Took them to court and won, and got my money.

I have investment properties and I manage about 300 rentals in my business. There are horror stories but they are few and far between because I screen my tenants and stay on top of them (as needed) to prevent things from getting that bad. But there's always one that slips through the cracks...

Of course it's the tenant that was to have no pets and had so many that damaged the house and the concrete floor in basement had to be washed and sealed twice to keep the urine smell from coming through. Nasty.
