Aside from having to evict our friend from our apartment for not paying 2 months worth of rent, My wife and i have been fairly lucky with renting out our apartment.

We rented one of the rooms out in our house to a friend as well whom we never really saw. We started to get a funky smell in the house so i peeked in his room an saw this...

garbage and old food 3+ months old, crap everywhere, stuff all over the wall. The stench was disgusting,I dont know how enyone could live like that. The bathroom looked just as bad.
Needless to say he doesnt live with us anymore. It took me about 5 hours to fully clean the room and bathroom.

Yeah, I mean I DID tell him to just take what he wanted, leave the rest and GTFO. Watching him and his crackho gf rush around that place thinking they were actually going to clean it and get their security deposit back was a show.

Enjoy being homeless!

This isn't a rental story, but close enough.

A couple years back, an individual with a brain injury moved into the building. He would constantly flood his apartment and cause water damage to the adjoining suites. He would put liquid dishwashing soap in his washing machine and keep it running. He would plug his toilet and keep flushing. After his washer broke, he would wash his clothes with a hose in the middle of his living room. This was causing leaks to the floor below, and mold to the adjoining suites.

Needless to say, restoration companies had to be brought in numerous times because his unit was just destroyed.

Not was it bad enough that he has a brain injury, he was also a drug addict. After he broke his stove, he started making fires in his living room to cook the drugs.

He didn't use keys or fobs - maybe he lost them a long time ago - so he would prop or tape open outside entry doors repeatedly. When a security guard caught him in the act, he got a face full of pepper spray.

He would also go outside and flash people at the local supermarket.

He's been arrested many times, but always gets released because of his brain injury.

Why was he not kicked out after so many issues? Because he wasn't a renter. He owned the unit he was destroying. Apparently he got a fair bit of settlement money when he got his brain injury, so his finances weren't an issue. I don't remember the technical details, but the courts had determined that he was not fit to handle his finances, so he had someone managing his trust fund... but for whatever reason, he was deemed able to live on his own, which clearly isn't the case.

He racked up many thousands of dollars of fines, but he didn't care, and continued being a nuisance to the entire building, and there was basically nothing we could do about it.

It got to the point where the police stopped responding to issues with him, because there was little they could do about it.

I think the biggest break we got was when a government office decided to open up downstairs, directly beneath his unit. With him constantly causing water damage that leaked into the suite below, I think that was the final straw and somehow things were done to force him out of the building. He was banned from the building, but yet at the time he was still the owner of the suite. He got into the building again at some point and tried breaking back into his suite. He tried picking through the wood door to reach in and unlock it... but the door had been keyed even from the inside, so fortunately he wasn't able to get in, because if he did, apparently he had squatter rights and the police wouldn't be able to remove him since he still owned the suite. But the police came while he was still outside his door, so they were able to arrest him.

So... after his unit was restored once again, apparently he has been forced to sell it. Not sure if it's been sold yet or not.

I feel bad for the guy as a person because of his brain injury, but there's no way that he should have moved into a large apartment complex to be a nuisance to so many people. Wouldn't it be better for everyone involved, including himself, if he bought a nice little house of his own and destroyed it without bothering others?

^Just curious - I hear a lot of your stories and am starting to get the impression that you own properties in some really shady areas that are cheap as hell. I mean if a heroin addict with an obvious mental illness can afford to live in your place, it must be some slummy ass shit. I'm wondering why you're so shocked that a crack addict is treating your place like shit, when your place is in cracktown. Am i totally off here, or? I don't mean any offence here, i'm just genuinely interested.

^lol ah ok that makes sense...i forgot that most of these fucked up addicts have no problem using their family members etc. in any way they can. Good on u for caring...I def believe a building manager who doesn't care, like a business owner who doesn't care, or frankly anyone who doesn't care, about what they do, is going to have it come back on them big time, which obviously it sounds ike it does.

I didn't bother to check every post in this thread to see if this has been posted yet, but I just saw this video the other day. A guy rents out his house and this happens! Warning: Don't watch this video while eating or if you have a weak stomach...
