We’ve had our fair share of landlord tenant stories and here is one…Landlord rented out his house to what seemed like a nice family. Both parents, kids, stable job. They paid their rent on time and never caused any issues. After a year or so, landlord wanted to drop by to see how things were going. You need to give notice before an inspection, and the landlord couldn’t get them on the phone, so they left a note on the door.
The next day, the guy shows up at the landlords house and hands them a check for next month’s rent. They told the landlord they were leaving, so long, good bye. Apparently they bought a new house in a much nicer neighborhood. The landlords thought this was a little odd, so they went to see the rented house, thinking that there’s a lot of damage.
The place was empty and clean. The only sign that anything was wrong was that there were some weird 7″ wide circular burns on the carpet downstairs, some steel tubing left against the wall, and a teeny little weed sapling, forgotten in the corner.
