If you’ve already been shown the worst tenants in history who turn their apartment into a dump, there’s no reason why we shouldn’t hit the landlords either. Because yes, there is a category of landlords who want to store up so much money that they are ready to do anything to tease their tenants. They are also ready to do anything to spend as little as possible on repairs and maintenance. Lovely people actually. Welcome to the world of people who have money and refuse to let go.

“Has anyone ever had to return the deposit for an apartment?” A few months ago my long term tenants returned the apartment in surprisingly good condition and I racked my brains to find something they broke and couldn’t find a single fault with them ! I think it was because it was a new apartment, all the other properties I own are in an old building with things bound to break eventually. It made me wonder if investing in newer real estate was really worth it if in the end you don’t keep the tenant’s deposit. »
2. Oh manure
“Can my landlord charge me $50 a month to park on the street?
When I moved into my apartment I didn’t have a car but the owner told me that if I had one I could rent a place from him for $100/month or pay him $50/month for park on the street. I found it strange to pay him to park on the street so I saw directly with the city who charged me $40/year to park on the street. The owner saw me in my car and came to see me, he said I was supposed to go through him to get the pass. […] Is this normal? »

6. The landlord wants to keep the landscaping of the tenant
I’ll give you a summary because it’s long, but you can read if you speak English: basically, the tenant says that over the years he landscaped the garden of the house he was renting and that he made it a great place. One day, his landlords said they were selling the house and asked him to move quickly. The tenant therefore moved, taking his garden facilities which belonged to him, and this infuriated the owners who said that they had put photos of the landscaped garden on the real estate ad. Basically, they wanted to keep all the stuff their tenant had added. The nerve.
