The landlord truly had to suffer at the hands of these tenants. The yard, which had been previously situated with winter-friendly plants, has been renovated because the tenant wanted to plant awful-looking banana trees.
Soon enough the landlord banana-split with the troublesome tenants.
'Tis the season
The tenant was fine until he decided to put up a real Christmas tree and set up actual candles around it. He, unfortunately, did not buy the sturdiest tree, so the tree knocked over the candles.
Of course, there was a blazing fire in a second because the fire was a perfect match for the dry hardwood floor to be able to ignite in flames. There was a ton of property damage. The cherry on top was the tenant claiming that the cost of the damages was the landlord's responsibility. The landlord did not hesitate a moment to evict him.
Walls As Garbage Receptacles
To the horror of this landlord, one of his tenants with whom he had rented his townhouse-style apartment decided to punch holes in the walls. While the tenant had not even made the bare minimum effort to cover up some of these holes, others had been tried to be covered with bad patch-ups.
But unfortunately, this was not even the worst part. Whoever made those holes had decided to use them as garbage receptacles! When the landlord discovered this, he had to tear down all the walls just to ensure he had cleared it all out. That's just trashy!
Parking Ticket Reimbursement
This tenant did not hesitate to complain constantly about every little thing to his landlord. From the neighbor's dog barking a little and having too many homeless people in the area to smelling the restaurant across the street from the house. He complained about every tiny inconvenience.
He also demanded that he should get rent credits for them, and acted like the landlord was responsible for it all. Similarly, on a fine day, when he received a parking ticket from the meter maids while being parked on a public street, he asked the landlord for reimbursement.
This one tenant had the constant habit of breaking and damaging the property of the house he was in and then taking the landlord to court to demand that they fix the damage.
This happened one too many times, and eventually, the tenant was evicted. However, the story does not end here. The now former tenant broke into the landlord's son's home to try and rob him, and thankfully, he did not succeed. He did get thrown in jail, though.
