Recently some renters moved out of one my rental properties and completely trashed the place. The level of trashiness is mind blowing.

Just a few things they did:
1. Used a charcoal grill in the front room. I don't think I need to explain how wrong this is or what it does to the ceiling and walls or what it will take to repair.

2. Left a huge pile of trash in the front yard. Now I have to clean this up before the neighbors complain and the city fines me. Last time this happened the fine was $500.



Rant over.

I can't think of any rational reason for using a BBQ indoors. Seriously, did the open all windows or something? But still....

Have you tested for meth yet?

I just finished rehabing a house of mine too. Previous tenant left 9 full size matteresses in a 3 bed house.

9.

I had to repaint the entire interior, repair fire damage to the kitchen, replace all the ceiling fans, etc....

Total damages cost me nearly $7k in repairs after the carpet and tile was replaced.

Corts would be useless. Hard to get anything out of a person when they can't pay the rent.

The exact reason I sold my rental. Well that and constantly having to pound on the door to get my rent money. Rental properties are a massive PITA with slob tenants and laws that only protect the renter. There is no money in them unless you got the property for a song to begin with.

I can't think of any "normal" reason why someone would be using a BBQ indoors....

Yep, been trying to get rid of them for awhile now. Down from 50 to 10. The market is not helping tho.

True story.

First week of my marriage to my current wife we had an apartment. I came home at lunch one day to a sight that almost sent me into cardiac arrest.

She had very diligently layered newspapers around the floor (carpet) and was grilling chicken in teh living room.

Her response, "this is how we do it in M'sia."

Sadly, she was telling the truth. I saw no less than 5 homes that had an open pit BBQ in their living rooms in Malaysia.

Ayup.

She has a bachelors degree and no common sense.

At least the houses in Malaysia are made of concrete.
