From a rental website that I found..some are pretty ridiculous!!!

Tenant called to say he's on the way over with the rent, I asked "full amount", he said "full amount. Hour and a half later he shows up (it's about a 10 minute drive) but he's about $300 short. What happened? "I saw a cool stereo system at the store and had to have it". I said hold on while I make a receipt for you. I typed him up a "3 day letter". Adios

Tenant said he was short because "dude, I had to get new tires for my 'TA' (that's a Trans-Am), last time I ever rented to anyone that was too much of car guy. Adios

Tenant says he started a new business, as a sheetrocker. I told him "no, you didn't start a new business, I did since you did it with my money". Also since sheetrocking is 90% labor and I figure you're stealing the raw materials from your boss". Besides, if I want to start a business, I'd start something more profitable. Adios

the former tenant came by and tried to steal a window A/C unit. He tried to tell the cops that he had purchased it and therefor he could take it. As he had been in the house 2 years and the unit was about 10 years old the cops told him if he came back around they would arrest him. Adios .

Called the tenant on the 3rd when the money wasn't there, he said "well I had it on the first, but when you didn't call I spent it". Adios.

Had a Realtor show up with a prospect one time, I thought it might be a bit odd that (1) most houses on the MLS were less money than mine, (2) agent had already printed and made copies of the applicants credit report, (3) tenant was driving his own (kind of a beater) car, while agent was in his (nice) car. Looked over the credit report and one of the things on it was a year old GMAC loan and some other stuff that didn't seem to fit the tenant (he looked like a "payday loan" kind of guy. I asked for his license and he handed it over, GUESS WHAT, not even close to the same name as that on the credit report. Adios

The worse one:
I had one tenant that at the eviction hearing told the magistrate that raw sewage was backing up in the basement and that's why they didn't pay rent. I told the magistrate that they were lying. She evicted them. However, when I took possession of the house, I found out that they weren't lying. Their water had been turned off for nonpayment of the water bill. When you "flush" solids down the commode with almost no water, it gets clogged in the sewer line. When the commode would no longer flush, they cut the sewer line off in the basement and then started using the bathroom again and the sewage formed a giant sewage fountain in the basement. Evicted and I sued them for damages (and won). :(

When we bought our house 12 yrs ago, we had to rent out our previous house until it sold. This was explained to the tenant. When the house sold, the tenant took all the blinds, ceiling fans, appliances, interior doors and even the toilet and kitchen cabinets. They even disassembled and took a 10x12 steel shed.
