House I bought two years ago from a slum lord for 19k. Neighborhood is ok. Not wonderful, but not a war zone either. Tenant is paying 365/month. Never on time and most of the time, I have to serve her with a 5 day eviction to get her to pay. Also, there was a lien put on the property because she didn’t pay the sewer bill. I paid it to clear the property and the bill is now 185.00 because of the fees involved. I sent a letter and she paid a whole 20.00 of the sewer bill to me. Now today is the 9th, and of course, I don’t have her rent.
She is a PIG. But I knew that when I bought the house. I figure, as long as she pays at all, never mind late, I am money ahead, because it will take 5k to fix the house up for anyone else to live in it. Of course, I knew that when I bought the property. And fixed, it would rent for 550/ month. But I have been on a recent rampage of revamping the rentals, and really am not ready for another right now.
I get a call from Terminix today. She called them today and wants them to call me and make me pay to exterminat mice. She also asked them if she can sue me for the mice. Terminix hasn’t even been to the house yet, but he “tells” her that she can’t sue me or get the city on me. My contention is that she is a PIG, and if her house was clean, there would be no mice. She said that she can get 50 mice in traps in two days. Now talk about pushing the envelope…
That’s it ! I’m just going to tell her to leave. Give her her 30 day notice, and gut the house. Boy, I’m getting mad just talking about it. She wants the Tashma Hall for 365/month.
Fix it and L/O it for 550/month with 3k down. Slam Dunk.
Just had to vent.
