I can never understand this sense of hard done by, by some tenants. Do they often think all landlords are fat cats. Often when you see them on TV it’s like the landlord had actually done something wrong to them. They seem to hate us, although myself and many other landlords I know go out of our way to give a tenant the benefit of the doubt, preferring to maintain a cordial relationship with them for as long as possible.
Then the senseless act of actually trashing the place before they leave. I’m not just talking about leaving the rubbish behind, but not even bothering to fill the bins that the council provided.
Lets have a discussion on the worst thing landlords have ever seen.
I once had a tenant that deficated in a frying pan and left it on the hob
Another time after eviction I counted and disposed of 58 car tyres from the back garden
Many years ago my Mother had her jaw broken by a tenant.
Also many years ago we had 3 flats burn down, but it was in the days of paraffin heaters.
Anyone got any nightmare stories to tell us.
