Tenant. You'll never learn to spell the word correctly if you aren't corrected.
I hope it's spelled correctly in the leases you hold.

I am happy to hear you have had very little problems. I have had nightmare stories renting. I won't ever do it again. I would rather pay the mortgage and let it sit before I would rent it again.

But they dont. I rented for a while.. but the way people think that they are owed.... I just cant do it anymore. It will either sell or sit there. Entitled is the word...

How does someone like this sleep at night. Entitlement reins. He actually believes he is entitled to everything in life. But his thought process is flawed (as many are). The only way to be "happy" in life is to earn your way through life. Sure wish more people could understand this.

Funny, as a landlord myself I have had little problems for renters other than their idea of "clean" not being what I or or a new renter would consider "clean".
Yes you can have problems but given the number of rental units in the US and the number of people that own multiple units, the power of tenents does not seem excessive.
Perhaps if you were a tenent you might of a different opinion of the relationship......for every bad tenent its a safe bet there is also a bad landlord.

Contrary to popular belief?, folks are not rewarded on a sliding scale according to how stupid they act but more likely arrested.

Renters are something these days - and unless you burn it down.. the law is on their side. Shame...

Rent on his new "apartment" is low, EUIMPORT1, but he potentially may have a lot longer of a lease than he bargained for.
