In need of a space to hang his clothes, this tenant thought that it would be a great idea to use the fire sprinkler as a makeshift endpoint of a line for his clothes. As you can guess, the sprinkler broke under the pressure of heavy clothes, and both the landlord and other tenants had to pay.
All the floors below the unit had water leaking to them, and the cost of repairs was no joke either. The guy received his eviction notice from the landlord soon afterward.
Playing the Victim
When this landlord found out that his tenants were allowing a friend to live at the apartment without adding him to the lease, he asked the freeloader to vacate the apartment. The landlord clarified that the only other option he had was to start paying rent.
This was led by numerous excuses from the freeloader, among which he claimed that he shouldn't have to pay as it wasn't actually his apartment and that he was just living there. He also posted an entire sob story on Facebook! Fortunately, the landlord took none of his excuses and still evicted him.
"Weightlifting" on Toilets
A tenant broke the flat's toilet several times. The bowl kept breaking off each month almost. The landlord had spent more money fixing the toilet than the rent they earned from the tenant. The landlord evicted them after 6 months of them constantly breaking the toilet.
The tenants only gave them an excuse that their three-year-old child kept sitting on it, and the bowl kept breaking. The landlord comically says they must have been weightlifting on the toilet because they were heavier than a three-year-old child and the toilet never broke when they sat on it.
From the Windows to the Walls
Imagine the shock that this tenant experienced when he walked into the apartment he had rented, only to see everything broken. You would think there was a tornado in this house as everything inside was broken.
From every window being cracked to every wall having holes in them as though someone had punched those through them. The house was in terrible shape; worst of all, the tenants were nowhere to be found. As a last resort, the landlord had to call the police and track them down for reimbursements. Yikes!
When this landlord returned to his house after it had been rented out, they thought they had entered the wrong house.
The previous tenants who had occupied the house had done a lot of remodeling work on the house, and gotten paint everywhere, that too, without his permission. They had overstepped their boundary, and the landlord was not happy. He took this matter to the authorities and later fined the tenants for major unauthorized renovations.
