Adventures in landlording 2016 edition.

So once upon a time there were these people that bought a house from me and a year later wanted to sell it again and not lose money despite the fact that it costs about 9% to close. I perform this miracle. She divorces him as soon as the papers are inked. He needs a place to stay. He's a bit creepy, but a hard worker. She had mentioned that his father had committed suicide and how he was pretty fucked up as a result.

Anyway, not a great house because I didn't have time to rehab it. Had just purchased. He paid rent great. Had a good paying job, but was really weird and he was always incredibly dirty. Like he rarely showered. He was that way when he was married and the same way now. His kid would come to stay every once in awhile. A 10 year old. He was with mom in California.

He comes in one day and says he'll be gone for a full month, and pays in advance. He ends up gone longer, but I check to make sure he didn't kill himself in the place. He actually asked me to stop by and check on it. So he shows up after 3 months and pays for the month he missed. I wasn't there, but it was nice to know he was okay. Apparently he failed to mention that was also his parting gift. He just plain got his stuff and left town. Maybe to a new job. No idea.

I move a new guy and his girlfriend in. He's a contractor and he is working on the place as part of rent. I know him. Good guy in need of a second chance. He texted me tonight. Turns out that his dogs were rooting around the back yard and started barking. The renter uncovered a shallow mass grave of animals. Fucking fuckity fuck! So now I have to get the police over tomorrow.

This thread needs pics. Also If I ever rent again I am burying every chicken/beef bone that goes through my place in a shallow mass grave just to fuck with the landlord/future tenants.

At least they're animals and not people who've been listed as missing.

Or the ex? Or Eddie Money's ex, for that matter?

Dave, do NOT call the police. They will just frame you for this. You'll be lucky if they don't shoot you in the process.

Are you talking about the bones or the renters?

Why don't people have any pride in their work? Always with the shallow graves. Put your back into it, another foot or two down won't kill you.

Re: Adventures in landlording 2016 edition.

I found out recently my tenant/flatmate/friend has been whoring herself out and using my premises as an illegal brothel. She places ads online and trades services for 'rewards' while I'm at work.
Doesn't think she is doing anything wrong. Asks me to change my ideal to accept her lifestyle.
Can't take in the fact that it's illegal and puts me in line for massive financial and legal problems.
She's in the process of moving out. What a drama...

This needs it's own thread with way more details.

As for Dave, that story is creepy as hell. Did they have pets or something that would explain it?

Re: Adventures in landlording 2016 edition.

If you do have the police over...they'll have to send the bones in for testing to see if they're human.

We will have months of waiting...and speculating. Not sure you want to give that much time to the people on this forum.

Better just move the bones now...

Sounds as if you were charging the wrong rent.

Call Manitowoc County Sheriff's Department ... They could help you with moving the bones.

Uh yeah, this absolutely needs its own thread. Then we can have two "landlord" threads in competition for Thread of the Year 2016!

Long enough that we know it wasn't the kid.

Thanks for the heads up. I may not bother calling them depending on the scope of the grave.

Re: Adventures in landlording 2016 edition.

So Dave, you sound like you're sticking with this whole "my tenant did it defense". Maybe a one armed man did it. Just go turn yourself in.

a year later wanted to sell it again and not lose money despite the fact that it costs about 9% to close. I perform this miracle.
How did you do this? Wave all your fees?
